Justis Publishing is delighted to announce that its JustCite legal research service will index case reports from Canadian publisher, Maritime Law Book.
The deal with Maritime Law Book will see over 150,000 cases from 12 different series being added to JustCite’s growing index.
JustCite is an online legal research platform that helps legal practitioners and information specialists find leading authorities and establish the current status of the law. It links through to cases and legislation from across the common law world.
The content provided by Maritime Law Book ranges from 1969 until present and covers series such as Federal Trial Reports, National Reporter, Ontario Appeal Cases, Alberta Reports and British Columbia Appeal Cases.
Masoud Gerami, Managing Director at Justis Publishing, said: “We have continued our initiative to bring together the most relevant and authoritative content from all common law jurisdictions, and make them available through the exciting and ground-breaking JustCite platform.
“I am delighted that we have included the index of the valuable series of case reports from Maritime Law Book, which is another step in providing easy access to the highly interrelated laws of different countries. I am confident that this addition will be of significant benefit to practitioners and researchers in Canada and the wider common law community.”
Maritime Law Book publishes law reports covering every provincial jurisdiction in Canada, except Quebec. The reporters also contain all Supreme Court of Canada, Federal Court trial and appeal decisions, and select decisions of the United Kingdom Supreme Court and Privy Council. The decisions have concise headnotes (summaries) written by in-house editors (all lawyers). The headnotes feature Maritime Law Book's "Key Number System", whereby each point of law identified by its editors is assigned a unique Key Number that can be used to quickly find the same point of law in other cases.
Eric Appleby, President of Maritime Law Book Ltd., said: "Our primary objective at Maritime Law Book is to make legal research easier for lawyers. We see our involvement with JustCite as another way of meeting that objective for researchers both in Canada and abroad. We are very excited about this initiative."
