The Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII) and Lancaster House announced this afternoon that they are cooperating in a project to provide open access legal commentary. The digitized text of Wrongful Dismissal and Employment Law (1st Ed.) by Peter Neumann and Jeffrey Sack "will be fully integrated and freely available to the public on the CanLII website" as of tomorrow, May 4, according to the joint press release. The press release also states that CanLII President, Colin Lachance, sees this a first step in improving access to law through the free provision of explanatory materials.
The Wrongful Dismissal e-text will be updated in July and subsequently two to four times each year.
