Canada Law Book Law Journals Online

I am getting old (and careless). I thought I knew most if not all of the law journals that were available online. In a recent post, I jokingly raised the need for Canada Law Book (CLB) to put its journals online. I have since found out that in fact a number of their journals are or will be online online. To wit:

Canadian Business Law Journal – on HeinOnline (Vols. 1-40: 1975-2004) and soon to also likely be available through CLB.

Criminal Law Quarterly – on CLB’s Criminal Spectrum product

Other CLB journal titles will also be digitized, likely soon, on dates to be announced.

This is indeed good news and congrats (and apologies) to Canada Law Book. Apparently, CLB announced this at this year’s annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Libraries (which I did not attend).

The Bora Laskin Law Library has a nice list of law journals available online.


  1. I have it on good authority that the Advocates’ Quarterly is also being put on line.
