Integration of additional indices for Texts & Annotations on WestlawNext Canada

Many customers have requested the integration of additional indices for Texts & Annotations on WestlawNext Canada. Indices are important research tools and allow for simple navigation throughout each title.

We are pleased to announce that we have increased the number of Indices available for our Texts & Annotations collection, and they will be added to WestlawNext Canada over the next month. Additionally, they will be conveniently found in the Table of Contents for each applicable title. Accessing the indices from the Table of Contents will provide a more intuitive, efficient research experience. It will be a marked improvement to accessing them from the separate link under Finding Tools on the Homepage (and therefore, we will remove those links as well).

You also have the option to easily download, print or email any index. A full list of titles that will have Indices is provided below.

New content launching on WestlawNext Canada: Causes of Action, Defences and Remedies

We are pleased to announce the addition of some exciting new content launching soon on WestlawNext Canada: Causes of Action, Defences and Remedies, a new collection of more than 80 custom-written articles written exclusively for Thomson Reuters by Ted Tjaden, a highly respected Canadian research and knowledge management lawyer. The articles uniquely pull together all critical information for the litigator around specific tort and contractual causes of action as well as articles which focus specifically on the requirements for preparing particular pleadings including statements of claim, statements of defence, third party claims, replies and facta.

Each article provides:
• Concise overview of the cause of action, defence or remedy (including definitions, key elements, leading cases, relevant legislation/rules, concordances, burden of proof, available remedies, practice tips)
• Model Pleadings and Facta
• Practice Checklists
• Sample Examination Questions
• Research References (bibliographies)

Having all this information pulled together in one extensive article ensures the litigator will have to hand all critical information necessary to draft pleadings, plan discoveries and plan for trial in an action based on one of the causes of action - all in a neatly organized, thorough, classified and expertly-analyzed package. Causes of Action, Defences and Remedies will be an invaluable resource for the novice and experienced litigator alike.
