Members and Privileges

Count on CAIJ to be your ideal work partner. The privileges associated with membership in CAIJ include tools and expertise supporting the legal practice. Created out of a desire of the Bar of Montreal, Barreau du Québec and the Association des avocats de province to monitor the evolution of the legal profession and democratize justice by improving access to legal knowledge, CAIJ negotiates on behalf of its members to acquire the best content and select the best technological resources.


Who are CAIJ members?

You are a member of CAIJ if :

  • you are a member of the Barreau du Québec
  • you are a judge appointed to the Quebec judiciary
  • you are a student of the École du Barreau in Montreal, Quebec City, Sherbrooke or Gatineau
  • you are a member of an association or a partner that concluded an agreement with CAIJ.

Our founding members will always have priority

The founding members will always have priority. As the founders of CAIJ, the members of the Barreau du Québec occupy a special place. Since CAIJ’s creation in 2001, they have helped it achieve its mission of making legal information accessible and ensuring that access is consistent regardless of geographic location or work environment.

Guarantees can be issued to members’ employees

A CAIJ member can guarantee you only if you work directly for him or her in a legal firm or department. To this end, the CAIJ member must fill out a guarantee form giving you access to all of CAIJ’s services in the performance of your duties. The member who guarantees you is fully responsible for your activities and transactions. Should any fees charged to your account remain unpaid, CAIJ reserves the right to suspend your account and that of your guarantor. Note that a guarantee cannot be issued to a member of a professional order.
