Enhanced Content

More than digital documents

From a single access point, discover the quality legislative, jurisprudential and secondary sources that CAIJ has assembled for you, so that you have the best overview of a specific provision, a legal issue, or a topic of current interest.

Annotated statutes


An outstanding source of legal analysis, CAIJ’s collection of annotated statutes contains 101 Quebec and Canadian statutes and covers 18 legal fields. The annotations allow you to quickly determine the status of the law by consulting legislative provisions forming the basis of content which is enhanced by other resources selected by the CAIJ’s team.


Documented research questions


Orient your legal research using the CAIJ’s knowledge base, which includes over 5,000 research questions in some 50 legal fields. Enhanced and updated on a regular basis, the general research questions identify useful sources to consult on a given subject, provided the specific research questions address very precise legal issues. Each question includes references to the legislation and secondary sources available in CAIJ’s co-working libraries.


Scott’s Index* to Canadian Legal Periodical Literature


Listing over 42,000 articles published since 1998, the Scott’s Index is the most in-depth documentary source of legal journals. Our professional legal team of lawyers and librarians analyzes the most informative passages in order to select the legal fields that complete the collection of accessible secondary sources at CAIJ, which includes mainly:

  • legal articles from over a hundred Canadian legal journals
  • legal articles in scientific journals from related fields (e.g. Canadian Journal of Political Science)
  • texts from legal conferences and seminars
  • case comments

*Formerly known as the Index to Canadian Legal Periodical Literature.
