CanLII Invites Members of Legal Community to Provide Case Commentaries

As many readers know, CanLII, the Canadian Legal Information Institute, recently launched a new platform called CanLII Connects that allows publishers, law firms and academics to share commentary on cases and legislation. CanLII Connects already contains 27,000 case summaries and commentaries.

Earlier this week, CanLII published an invitation to potential contributors to share their case summaries or commentaries:
"If you have previously written case summaries or commentaries for client bulletins or blog posts, give them new life by making them available to people reading the case!"

"We all have an interest in uncovering which of the tens of thousands of new and recent rulings added to CanLII each year add to our understanding the law."

"We created CanLII Connects to deliver big insights through organizing small contributions."
In one of here regular research tips on, Shaunna Mireau explains how CanLII results now include links to commentary from CanLII Connects:
"This innovation with add more ‘social’ to legal commentary. The legal community speaking to each other through published case commentary has been wonderful. The legal community offering select commentary to our own clients and through our own websites has also been very useful. It will be interesting to see how socializing legal commentary with this offer of case comments easily available to all impacts the legal information space."
