A Research Tip

  • Research & Writing

Today’s tip is for the watcher. Quite often a court proceeding of interest will be reported in the media as the case is heard. Decisions, especially in civil cases, usually come down at some future time. There are a couple of ways to virtually ‘watch’ for decisions of interest.

  • Try a Google News alert – if the case was media worthy when it was being hear, there may be a media report of the decision which a Google alert will send to your email inbox.
  • Create a CanLII RSS feed for a search of the decision – even if a party name search results in no hits, you can still create an RSS feed that will send the result to your reader when the decision appears in the database

Anyone have another new case watch method to share?
