We are excited to announce that Law Society members now have access to even more great eBook content right on their desktop or mobile device: Emond’s Criminal Series eBooks.
Emond describes this series, which received the prestigious Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing, on its website:
The 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.
You can access these titles simply by logging into the Members’ Resource Section of the Law Society’s website.
The addition of this new series means that Law Society members now have access to nearly 400 eBooks through the Members’ Resource Section from Irwin Law, Westlaw Next, Emond Publishing, and vLex Canada.
Legal Resources and Library staff regularly evaluate new digital resources and negotiate with legal vendors in order to provide members with access to the latest online resources. As we continue to evolve the Law Society’s print resource collection towards a largely online one, members can expect to see more online resources and to receive a competitive return on investment from the Library.
If you have any questions about legal resources, ask a Law Society Librarian! We are pleased to provide high-quality assistance to Saskatchewan members in person, on the telephone, or by email.
