New Product Announcement-->Canadian Labour Law Library

Canadian labour law library

Skeptics may mock but this is a much awaited product. The link is a bit wonky, you'll need to select the CLLL even after using the link.


Canadian Labour Law Library features the latest commentary from Brown and Beatty's Canadian Labour Arbitration, 3rd Edition, the Labour Arbitration Cases (L.A.C.) and Canadian Labour Arbitration Summaries (C.L.A.S.), all linked by a comprehensive Master Table of Cases. Other features include:

Classification Scheme - Use the Classification Scheme to search for decisions by topic. The Classification Scheme interacts with the L.A.C. 4th Series Index and the C.L.A.S. Index. When you activate a link on a topic in the Classification Scheme, that topic will be searched in the Indices and a list of documents containing similarly classified cases will be displayed.

New This Week - Most recently published cases and summaries from L.A.C. and C.L.A.S. are featured in the New This Week section. You can scroll through the 'Cases Reported', an alphabetically listing of all new decisions, or the 'Index to Subject Matter' which is included for each new part. Use the links on the case name to view the corresponding full text decision.

Leading Cases - Please note that the authors have "bolded" some of the cases in the endnotes of Canadian Labour Arbitration, 3rd Edition. The purpose of this is to identify key cases, those that the authors consider to be seminal or particularly useful because they contain a comprehensive summary of the jurisprudence in the area.

Table of Contents - By expanding the headings within the Table of Contents you are able to locate the exact chapter, decision or section that you wish to review. Click the plus (+) signs from the area on the left of your screen to expand the Table of Contents and reveal more headings. To view a document, click on a heading in the Table of Contents and the corresponding document will appear in the right-hand area of your screen.

Searching - Custom Search Forms have been included to make searches easy to perform. The Advanced Search Form allows the user to construct their own searches, ranging from single word queries to Boolean, proximity and scope searches. All Search Forms can be accessed from the drop-down menu at the top of the screen. For more information on searching and navigation tips, click the 'Help' link at the top of the page.
