Free Annotated Quebec Civil Code

LexUM, the legal technology laboratory of the Law Faculty of the Université de Montréal, has launched its Annotated Civil Code of Quebec (ACCQ).

It provides browsing by section of the Code, as well as relevant case law from the free online portal CanLII.

According to LexUM:
"The relevant decisions issued from the Supreme Court of Canada, Appeal Court of Québec, Superior Court of Québec and Court of Québec are automatically linked to each section with the data provided by Reflex, CanLII’s citator. The neutral reference, the style of cause, the judgment date and the URL of the decisions are also attached to each section."

"The ACCQ is an innovative tool integrating Web 2.0 principles into legislative analysis. Therefore, ACCQ users are able to contribute to the project by giving their own explanation as to why a certain decision is relevant in the context of a particular section of the C.C.Q."
