We are thrilled to announce additional digital criminal law content available to all members: Emond Publications award-winning Criminal Law series.

Emond’s award-winning Criminal Law Series offers clear, concise guidance on the practical and procedural aspects of criminal law. Ideally suited for members of the criminal bar and judiciary, this collection covers discrete areas of criminal practice, anchored by the expertise of General Editors Brian H. Greenspan and Justice Vincenzo Rondinelli. Most titles are authored by both defence and Crown counsel, lending balance and comprehensiveness to the series.

New Product – American Law Institute Library

Effective April 1, 2019, the library is adding an additional resource to our HeinOnline collection. In addition to the Canada Core Library, we have added the American Law Institute Library.

More Manitoba Statutes on HeinOnline

Last year HeinOnline completed a major update to Manitoba legislative content on their service; however, it was missing the 1970 revised statutes and the 1987 re-enacted statutes, as well as a few miscellaneous individual annual statutes. We undertook to ensure Hein had the content to add to their collection, so that all lawyers in Manitoba could conduct legislative research from their desktops.

HeinOnline is just one of the resources available to all members of the Law Society of Manitoba behind the members’ portal. If you haven’t used it yet, consult this guide for assistance.
