December 7, 2007
News Release No 2007-06Dear users,
I am happy to announce a set of new features that CanLII is now offering to you in order to help you deal even more efficiently with search results.
In your search results, you are now able to sort cases based on the number of times a case has been cited. You can do so by clicking on the “The most cited” link in the “Sort” menu of your search results page. By choosing “Sort by The most cited” the search engine will display the most frequently cited cases first.
Each result indicates the number of times the case has been cited. You will notice that the number of times a case has been cited is also an active link. By following that link, you will access a list of the citing cases.
Thank you for using CanLII!
