From Your Library: New Release – “Researching Quebec Law: Insights for Common Law Practitioners”

When we saw this new book available through Carswell, we immediately put in an order for a copy for the library. We don’t tend to get a lot of questions having to do with Quebec, so if you’re like us and a bit lost when it comes to the law of la belle province, this book might give you some much needed clarity. Written for non-French speaking, common law legal professionals, the book provides a history of the Quebec legal system, information on how to research Quebec legislation, case law, and commentary sources, and a very thorough glossary of terms.

This book is so new to the library that we don’t even have it on the shelves yet. If you would like to review it right away, please ask at the front desk. In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to find this book in our Reference section at KF 240 M37 2015.
