CCLA Articling & LPP Students Breakfast & Legal Research Primer

On August 22, the CCLA welcomes 2019-2020 articling and LPP students to our breakfast and legal research primer!

Following a light breakfast, students will take a crash course in the legal research they’ll be given over the next year, and how to get the work done. They will also have a chance to tour the CCLA library and learn about all of the resources we have available for to use at absolutely no cost.

This event is free with payment of the CCLA articling student membership registration. For $25 + HST, CCLA Articling Student Membership entitles students to 24/7 access to the CCLA Library, an Ottawa Courthouse Security Card (to bypass security in our courthouse), and other CCLA membership perks.

Registration is capped at 60 students, so make sure to register early!  A waiting list will be established once we hit capacity.

To register (or to register on behalf of your students), please follow this link! If you are already a CCLA student member, please sign in to the site before proceeding and the registration will be free.

CanLII Spring 2019 Updates

Keen observers and users of CanLII may have noticed that things look a little different lately. Last month, the CanLII team wrote about new design changes that were made on the website to help with clarity and consistency. Check out their blog post (linked above) for all the details.

For my money, I think the biggest change that you may want to familiarize yourself with is where to find additional information on decision and legislation pages. You can see on the example below, for a judicial decision, that links (or tabs) to the case history, decisions cited, subsequent case citations, and links to material on CanLII Connects are now available just below the name of the case (or legislation). Previously, these links were tucked in a bit further below.

#ThrowbackThursday: CCLA / GCTC Lawyer Play 2009

The 20th anniversary CCLA / GCTC Lawyer Play – War of Two Worlds – is currently running, so this week we’re throwing back to the 2009 Lawyer Play. That year, the play was written by Ottawa’s own (and CCLA Past President!) Ian Stauffer and was called Lost in Paradise.

 

You can find a listing of all of the past Lawyer Plays on the CCLA website. We have a few more recent posters to add, and now that renovations are complete, we’ll be re-instituting the wall of Lawyer Play posters in the Library!
