Did you know that the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library provides members with weekly legal research tips through our blog, Legal Sourcery? In case you missed it, several weekly tips have covered how to note up case law and legislation over the past six months.
Noting up is a basic legal research skill. Noting up case law allows you to locate other decisions that have or have not followed or considered a particular case. This will enable you to determine whether a case is still good law or whether it has been overruled or criticized. Noting up a statute allows you to locate cases that have discussed the meaning and interpretation of that statute.

If you have any questions, ask a Law Society Librarian. We are pleased to provide high-quality legal research services to Saskatchewan members in person, on the telephone, or by email.
