Details and specs


The legal system in Quebec is marked by a unique co-existence of the civil law and common law traditions, making it a mixed jurisdiction. While the ever-expanding scope of online legal databases has made Quebec case law and legislation accessible to common law researchers and practitioners like never before, very few of Quebec's leading legal treatises are available or have been translated into English. Researching Quebec Law is written for non-French-speaking lawyers, librarians, students, and other legal researchers from common law jurisdictions.

The book consists of two parts:

  • Part I: An introduction to Quebec law generally, and Quebec civil law specifically (it provides an overview of the sources of law used to research substantive law in Quebec: legislation, jurisprudence, doctrine, and commentary)
  • Part II: Bibliographic and analytical overviews of substantive law topics that frequently puzzle common law researchers
