Quebec Legal Info Service CAIJ Adds New Annotated Code of Civil Procedure
CAIJ, the Centre d'accès à l'information juridique (the network of courthouse law libraries associated with the Québec Bar Association), has recently added an annotated version of the province's new Code of Civil Procedure (in the left column of the page "Code de procédure civile (nouveau)").
It includes the text of the Code, a list of changes in legal terminology, a concordance between the new and old Codes, background commentaries for each section from the provincial Ministry of Justice, links to related regulations, links to related research questions answered by the CAIJ libraries, as well as links to debates in the Québec National Assembly and positions adopted by the Québec Bar Association.
CAIJ won the 2012 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing for its JuriBistro UNIK global search engine. It simultaneously searches Québec Bar association continuing education materials, the CAIJ catalogue, the full text of Québec and federal caselaw and legislation, the full text of secondary literature from publisher Wilson & Lafleur, the contents of legal journal indexes and the TOPO knowledgebase of answers to research questions from member lawyers.
The Award is given out every year by the Canadian Association of Law Libraries.
