Lexum, the company that puts the opinions of the Supreme Court of Canada online, has updated the judgments page. The new page shows off Lexum’s product Decisia, software to assist courts and tribunals to put their decisions online.
The new page offers you a few recent decisions and a few news releases, with the option in each case of browsing through the entire database. Judgments can be browsed by date, case name or subject. Sophisticated searching is also possible, of course.
The only suggestion I’d make (after a very few minutes of using the Decisia layout) is that there needs to be a better way to get back to the main page after browsing. I wound up looking for a way to reverse the choice (thinking, I suppose, it had been accomplished with AJAX) and didn’t immediately understand I need the “home” button. Otherwise, this is a clean, efficient and up-to-date interface.
