National Reporter System

UBC Library now subscribes to the online version of the National Reporter System.

The National Reporter System consists of reporters for every province (except Quebec) plus two reporters for the federal courts. The provincial reporters include comprehensive coverage of the courts of appeal & selected cases from the superior trial courts. The National Reporter includes all the cases from the Supreme Court of Canada and the Federal Court of Appeal plus judgments from the House of Lords and the Privy Council that are relevant to Canadian law. The Federal Trial Reports includes selected cases from the Federal Court of Canada, Trial Division.

As a companion to the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (McGill Guide) which is only available in print at UBC Library, we have created an online Legal Citation Guide.  There is a link to this guide from the Law Library homepage, directly under the heading “Research Resources.”

The McGill Guide focuses on the citation rules for materials commonly referred to in legal writing – legislation, case law, books and journal articles.  To meet the needs of students and faculty who must cite to a broader range of resources, we have acquired The Chicago Manual of Style Online.  It is now available campus-wide from this resource page.
