Thursday, January 31, 2018
Time: 3:15 pm – 4:45 pm
Ken Fox, Alan Kilpatrick // LAW SOCIETY OF SASKATCHEWAN LIBRARY
Ignorantia Legis Neminem Excusat. Ignorance excuses no one. Indeed, the public is presumed to know the law. But in today’s world, the law is far too complex to be read out in a public square. It is even too complex for a trained professional to know much more than is required for a limited range of practice. Primary law is now simultaneously more voluminous and more available than ever. The haystacks are planet-sized, and the needles neatly labelled. Are you using a GPS, or an expired atlas? Today, knowing means knowing how to find. So how does one find the law on a particular question? Through legal information enhancements. In this session, the Law Society librarians will provide an account of how critical enhanced legal resources are to locating law for both the public and the legal profession.
