Lexis Practice Advisor and Canadian Legislative Pulse can now be easily accessed through a single sign-in. With this new feature, users can switch from Quicklaw to Practice Advisor or Legislative Pulse using the product switcher located in the top left corner of the screen (pictured below).
Practice Advisor has also improved content browsing, which allows quick access to specific content from a practice area, or the option to view all content.
Legislative Pulse provides a one-stop option to access daily updates to federal
and provincial bills. It also includes links to full texts of all available
versions of bills.
Launching on the week of July 15th, the new Indigenous Law Portal on LLMC digital has given a boost to researching indigenous law.
The portal is divided up by regions, with separate areas for Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and Central America. Within each region, it lists the various indigenous bands, as well as the leading indigenous organizations, and treaties (if any). The portal also contains international content, such as the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Although the site is still quite new, and some areas do not yet have any information, the fact that LLMC has brought all of this together in one database is something that should help guide researchers in their quest for more information about the multi-layered indigenous legal area.

Practical Law is a free academic service provided by Thomson Reuters. It focuses on practice-based research on topics such as capital markets and securities, commercial transactions, competition, corporate and mergers and & acquisitions, employment, finance and litigation.
It provides access to these resources: practice notes, checklists, toolkits, glossary of terms, provincial Q & A, legal updates, standard documents and standard clauses. The standard documents and standard clauses sections contain many useful model forms which supplement the forms available in O’Brien’s encyclopedia of forms.
You can access Practical Law through the Library’s eResources page. Just click on the letter P and then on Practical Law.
For more information, including registration instructions, learning materials and support please see the Practical Law tab on the Online Services Research Guide.
