Canadian Law Journals and Reviews Online

As part of a recent research project we did at Stem, we were looking for open access Canadian law journals and reviews. We came up with this list of publications that are partly or fully accessible for free online, and thought we'd share it here. If you have additions, please feel free to leave a comment and we'll update our list.

(Update July 4th 2014: we'll be posting occasional updates to this list.)

New Law Library Blog: Legal Sourcery

As I perused the latest additions on lawblogs.ca, I came across a new law library blog out of the Law Society of Saskatchewan called Legal Sourcery. (clever name!)

Published by library staff at the LSS, the author bio page notes Reché McKeague as the site's feature blogger; along with the site's team of staff bloggers: Ken Fox, Melanie Hodges Neufeld, Alan Kilpatrick, Kelly Laycock and Sarah Roussel-Lewis.

This blog has been updated frequently and has a nice mix of resources and commentary; and judging by its first few months of operation, looks to be a nice addition for those of us who follow law library blogs.

It's also nice to see this effort gain some traction with their target audience of Saskatchewan lawyers. They recently surpassed 10K page views in just a few months of operation, so the word must be getting out...

Congratulations to the crew over at Legal Sourcery. Please keep up the good work!
