Canadian Association of Law Libraries 2014 Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing to JurisClasseur Quebec
The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) announced earlier this week at its annual conference in Winnipeg that the JurisClasseur Québec encyclopedia (LexisNexis Canada) is the winner of the 2014 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing.
It is available as a collection of loose-leafs and online on Quicklaw. There was a brief description of the encyclopedia on Slaw.ca back in December 2012.
The annual award honours a publisher that has demonstrated excellence by publishing a work, series, website or e-product that makes a significant contribution to legal research and scholarship.
The other nominees this year were:
- The Queen’s Bench Rules of Saskatchewan: Annotated, 4th ed. (Law Society of Saskatchewan Libraries)
- Copyright Law, Fourth Edition (John Wiley and Sons, Inc.)
- GALLOP: Government and Legislative Libraries Online Publications Portal (Association of Parliamentary Libraries in Canada)
The award is named after Hugh Lawford (1933-2009), Professor of Law at Queens’ University and the founder of Quicklaw.
Slaw.ca received the award in 2009.
