This month’s post could be alternatively titled: The New Family Law Practice! It’s here! Yes, library users, a fresh shipment of the Ontario Family Law Practice, 2012 Edition from LexisNexis has arrived at the library.  Amanda has prepared the books for the shelves, and we’re excited to announce that we’ve increased our holdings to five copies.  In light of both of our copies of the 2011 edition having gone missing (and thank you, everyone, for using the older versions we had on hand as we waited for the new editions to arrive), we ask that you very carefully print your name and direct phone number on the sign-out cards, and that the book is returned to the front desk at the library (as opposed to on a shelving cart) every time you borrow it for court.

For our non-Family law library users, we have plenty of new materials that might be of interest.  In addition to a good number of yearly updates, we have updates to some favourite titles, such as a new edition of Paciocco and Stuesser’s The Law of Evidence, Hogg’s Liability of the Crown, and a new Administrative Law in Canada by Blake.  We’ve also acquired a new publication that might be of interest to those of you who are new to small claims practice.  Ontario Small Claims Court – A Practical Guide is a new title from LexisNexis that aims to give you the ins and outs of preparing for and appearing in Small Claims court.  If you’ve seen this book advertised and are thinking of picking it up for your own collection, feel free to come take a look at ours and see if it’s the right title for you.  Finally, just yesterday, a brand new publication that even us non-lawyers are interested in reading was delivered – Animals and the Law by Lesli Bisgould.  To my knowledge, there isn’t much else out there on this particular topic, so this title is a great addition to our collection.
