The National Self-Represented Litigants Project (NSRLP) has launched The Can LII Primer
"In the 2013 National SRL Study we were struck by the number of SRLs
who used Can Lll, and how important a resource this was for them. Can
Lll is not easy to navigate, and especially without a background
knowledge of the Canadian court structure, system of precedent, the
relationship of legislation to case law, and so on."
"Because so many SRLs continue to tell us how important Can LII is as a
resource for them, we decided last Fall to develop a guide to finding
your way around Can Lll. Julie [Dr. Julie Macfarlane, Professor of Law and Project Director] at the University of Windsor.began working on the Primer with NSRLP
Research Assistant Tamara Thomas, who is primarily responsible for the
Primer’s accessible prose and logical organization, as well as the
creative use of screenshots and other visuals. We quickly realized that
it was important to include a 'Law 101' section to enable users to
maximize the effectiveness of their searches."
The Primer can be found on the NSRLP website
