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.
You are a member of CAIJ if :
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.
A member of the judiciary, the Barreau du Québec or the Chambre des notaires du Québec can only endorse you if you work directly for him or her in a law firm or department. To do so, the CAIJ member must complete a bonding form to allow you access to all CAIJ services in the performance of your duties. The member who endorses you is fully responsible for your transactions and dealings. If charges are made to your account and are not paid, the CAIJ reserves the right to suspend your account and that of your guarantor. Note that a bond cannot be issued to a member of a professional order.
CAIJ is an organization that focuses exclusively on the needs of legal professionals. If you are looking for information on your individual rights and obligations, you are invited to consult the Éducaloi website, where legal information and current legal events are detailed in plain language for educational purposes.
