Some Highlights from the Vendor’s Forum
October 29, 2013
If you were unable to attend the CLLG Vendor’s Forum held on October 28, 2013, here are some highlights from this event.
LexisNexis (Online) and LexisNexis (Print)
LexisNexis Online announced the release of Practical Advisor Canada, an online tool for the transactional lawyer. Currently the only practice area covered is Insolvency & Restructuring but Intellectual Property will be available soon. On the print side, Arthur Vaz announced new titles and some specials currently on including the opportunity to update cancelled looseleaf titles at 40% off.
Alberta Queen’s Printer
Alberta Queen’s Printer announced that a new website is coming and that QPSource would be getting a new software update. They are looking for power users to test the new QPSource platform. If you would like to be a beta tester, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The Queen’s Printer is trying to obtain the rights to distribute the Alberta Building Code & Fire Code from the Feds. They also spoke about the new Public Registry of Proposed Regulations.
Carswell announced that they would be rolling out the new WestlawNext Canada to subscribers in waves starting in 2014. WestlawNext will have a “google” type interface with “one search” but will maintain an “advanced search” for more sophisticated users. New tools will help users share and organize research they have found. New titles continue to be added to the eReference Library and there is currently a treatise sale at 35% off.
S & P Capital IQ for Law Professionals
New to the CLLG Vendors Forum, S & P provides real time market data, research and analytics.
I want to thank the Program Committee and the vendors for putting on this event. I always find it relevant and informative.
