Lexis Advance Quicklaw Is Your New Quicklaw

In September 2016, Lexis Nexis launched a new interface called Lexis Advance Quicklaw. Since then you have still been able to access the old LexisNexisQuicklaw interface.
Effective August 31, 2018, the old LexisNexis Quicklaw will no longer be available. 
Now would be a good time for you to create a new Lexis Advance Quicklaw account if you haven’t already done so.
If you need further assistance, please contact the Reference Librarians at lawref@osgoode.yorku.ca, (416) -736-5207
