The Law Society’s searchable legal databases (Bills, Cases, Conduct Review, Ethics Ruling, and Sentencing Digests) were officially relaunched on a modern, mobile-friendly, and cloud-based database platform on Friday, November 20th, concluding a year-long Legal Resources project.
Congratulations to the @LawSocietySask for 40 years of providing access to legal info tools Saskatchewanians need, and for the launch of your new database platform!https://t.co/kKOjz0nQ31 pic.twitter.com/eXPYdKGCzf

For the past forty years, Saskatchewan legal practitioners, the judiciary, and members of the public have relied on the free, timely, and reliable access to legal information provided by our innovative tools and databases. Migrating our valuable and unique data to this modernized database platform will ensure that all Saskatchewanians can continue to enjoy access to the Saskatchewan legal information they need for decades to come.
The relaunch is a demonstrable indicator of our commitment to legal information access for all Saskatchewanians. It represents our ongoing investment in our membership, Saskatchewan’s justice system, and legal information access for all in this province. CanLII, Canada’s open-access national law database, took note of the relaunch on Twitter.
