Charterpedia –

December 14, 2017

Charterpedia is a great new resource from the Department of Justice for Charter researchers.

“This Charterpedia provides legal information about the Charter and contains information about the purpose of each section of the Charter, the analysis or test developed through case law in respect of the section, and any particular considerations related to it. Each Charterpedia entry cites relevant case law, and citations to Supreme Court of Canada decisions are hyperlinked whenever possible.”

Introducing Fastcase on HeinOnline

December 8, 2017

The library has recently purchased Fastcase Premium through HeinOnline.  Fastcase is a comprehensive database of US caselaw which includes:

  • Judicial opinions of the Supreme Court (1754-present)
  • Federal Circuits (1924-present)
  • State case law covers all fifty states, with nearly half of the states dating back to the 1800s. Coverage for the remaining states dates back to approximately 1950.

Researchers can link directly to cases cited in  journal articles or they can do a full text search for cases via the Fastcase search template.  Cases located through the search template include links to all  articles and cases cited in the original case. The Negative Treatment Indicator (the Bad Law Bot)  links to  court cases that have overturned or reversed the cited case.
