The Garbrecht Law Library has an extensive Canadian Collection housed on the third floor of the library. It contains case reporters and statutes for Canada and for all of the Canadian provinces. The collection includes case law reporters such as the Reports of Family Law, Tax Cases, and Labour Arbitration Cases. Supported by a grant from the the Canadian-American Center at the University of Maine, the Law Library is able to collect a wide variety of treatises specific to Canadian law, including torts, contracts, constitutional law, criminal law, family law, tax, and secured transactions.
The Law Library’s Reference Collection has print guides to Canadian legal research, including Banks On Using A Law Library: A Canadian Guide To Legal Research, Legal Research: Step By Step, and Canadian Guide To Uniform Citation.
If you are interested in reading more about Canadian legal research, we recommend Doing Legal Research In Canada or the Best Guide To Canadian Legal Research. The most comprehensive online resource for Canadian primary material can be found at the Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII), a non-profit organization managed by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. CanLII’s goal is to make Canadian law accessible for free on the Internet. Its website provides access to court judgments, tribunal decisions, statutes and regulations from all Canadian jurisdictions.
