My attention was drawn to a question about Immigration and Refugee Board decisions today, one of the many areas of law about which I know nothing. I learned that some IRB decisions are reported in Lexis/Quicklaw's Immigration Law Cases and WestlaweCarswell's Immigration Law Reporter, and that the best online source is RefLex, a database available on the IRB site. RefLex makes available a selection of digested facts and decisions from among the thousands of cases, with no report of the legal analysis or argument, the principal aim of which is to inform Board members of what their colleagues have decided.
Another online tool for those interested in refugee law can be found at the University of Michigan Law School's Refugee Caselaw Site. This is an international database of top court cases from Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
