Streamlining your research
Consolidation of smaller topics under larger subject heads
Related subjects are brought together so that they can be conveniently accessed in one location, rather than splitting connected subjects over multiple titles and multiple volumes.
Convenient tools for finding topics
Each title includes a comprehensive table of cases and table of statutes, plus a complete index.
Helpful cross-references within each title and between titles
Related provisions of interest and interconnected titles are noted to provide the necessary context and the full picture.
As dictated by the needs of each unique subject title, Halsbury's provides a variety of useful appendices, from glossaries consolidating key statutory definitions to handy legislative concordances.
The Authoritative Voice
Bringing together the expertise of Canada's leading practitioners, jurists and academics.
A project with the scope and impact of Halsbury's Laws of Canada draws on the contributions of many talented and knowledgeable people. The quality of this unique project is in large part a reflection of the expertise of those who undertake to author each individual subject title within the larger main work. With that in mind, a select group of Canada's leading legal scholars, jurists and practitioners has been commissioned to craft an authoritative statement of the law in each subject area.
The result? The definitive reference point for legal research in Canada – an unparalleled tool that can be relied on by lawyers to answer the full range of questions likely to arise in the course of their work, especially those that fall outside their own fields of expertise.
