Case Law and Court Dockets

Set out below on this page are links for

1)  Finding Canadian case law
2)  Accessing Canadian court dockets online
3)  Accessing US, UK, Australian, NZ case law
4)  Accessing case law from other jurisdictions

1) Finding Canadian case law

A note on translations of French-language judgments from Québec: For English speakers wanting English  translations of judgments from Québec written in French, realize that most French judgments will be available only in French. My SLAW blogpost from 2 March 2011 explains in more detail where you can try to source English translation of French decisions.

2) Accessing Canadian court dockets online [top]

Free online access to Canadian court dockets remains relatively abysmal in Canada, with there being spotty coverage, depending on jurisdiction, unlike in the United States where there are fairly exhaustive subscription (fee) services such as LexisNexis CourtLink and Pacer.

In Canada, the following chart provides links for those jurisdictions that provide online access to court dockets. For those jurisdictions that do not provide online access, I have provided a link to the registry office to allow users to contact those registries for more information. Beneath this chart are links to various commercial services that provide selected Canadian court docket access.
