Quicklaw, Database of Canadian & UK Law, Free to Law Schools

I recently learned that U.S. law students, faculty and staff are once again eligible to receive individual passwords for Quicklaw, as known formerly as Quicklaw America.

Quicklaw, which merged a few years back with LexisNexis Canada, is a Web-based resource that offers over 2,500 databases of law, news and information from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Africa, Malaysia and the Caribbean. It includes cases & case citator, legislation, regulations, and news & journal articles.

To register for a Quicklaw password, contact LexisNexis Canada representative, David Woodard at david.woodard@lexisnexis.ca who can provide you with a temporary password. Once you have this password, go to http://www.lexisnexis.ca/ and click on the “Sign on to Quicklaw” button on the left. After logging in with this temporary password, you will be prompted to register for your own password.
