No need to wade through large numbers of non-relevant cases. Search results provide the most relevant cases faster.

No one can match our meticulous editorial work. For more than 150 years our legally trained editors have been classifying and re-classifying law using more than 33,000 classifications under 55 legal topics from the Canadian Abridgment.

Editors read every case and carefully draft headnotes that reflect the legal issues in the case. These headnotes include legal issue classification phrases from the Canadian Abridgement, legal synonyms, and other relevant words and phrases - so you don't miss relevant cases because you don’t know the exact language used by the court.
