CanLII Primer: New Resource for Self-Represented Litigants

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.
