A Virtual Canadian Law Library Becomes Reality

My latest Toronto Star Law Bytes column (Toronto Star version, HTML backup article, homepage version) reflects on Knight v. Hutchinson, a recent British Columbia decision in which a registrar reviewed online legal research expenses claimed by one lawyer. The registrar noted that the lawyer needed to show the necessity and reasonableness of the expenditure by addressing whether the case was freely available online. Given the emergence of the Canadian Legal Information Institute, that answer is increasingly yes. also see: Knight v. Hutchinson decision here
