CanLII Teams Up With Montreal Agency to Translate Major Canadian Cases

CanLII, the Canadian Legal Information Institute, announced earlier this week that it will work with Montreal translation firm BG Communications to ensure that selected Canadian judgments are available in English and French:
"Judgments selected for translation will be identified in consultation with the legal community. Relevant factors include national interest, substantive change in the law and practical application having regard to frequency of referral."
CanLII, whose funding comes from members of Canada’s provincial and territorial law societies, makes Canadian jurisprudence and statutes available for free via the Internet. It already contains over 1 million documents across over 200 collections, including the statutes, regulations and current court rulings of all federal, provincial and territorial jurisdictions.
