Law Society Improves Access to Current CPD Materials by Lifting Embargo

Leave a comment

Great news for legal practitioners, researchers and law librarians! The Law Society of Ontario has eliminated its embargo on new CPD materials available through AccessCLE. Now even the most recently added papers from 2019 programs are free to print or download in PDF format.

Continuing professional development (CPD) program materials are an invaluable source of current legal information. Papers typically cover the practical implications of recent case law and legislative developments, and often include useful precedents, procedure and checklists.

You’ll find Law Society CPD papers from 2004 to the current month on AccessCLE. This free resource lets you browse for programs and papers by area of law and year, or search the full-text of these materials by keyword. 

Here’s a sample search for information on adjudications under the new Ontario Construction Act:

The search results below include materials from a June 2019 CPD program, Practice Gems: Working with the New Construction Act.

Papers from the last 18 months were previously available in “read-only” format, but now relevant current materials such as these can be downloaded or printed for free.
