Today: There Are Some Hard to Find Foreign Cases on CanLII by Susannah Tredwell, Manager of Library Services at DLA Piper (Canada) LLP in Vancouver (originally published February 3, 2021 on the Slaw.ca website):
One of CANLII’s lesser known resources is its Foreign reported decisions database which “includes some decisions issued by foreign courts and tribunals and that are of special interest for Canadian law.”
For example, should you be interested in Browne v. Dunn (1893), 6 R. 67 (a decision sufficiently challenging to find online that someone created a dedicated website for it) you can find it on CanLII.
While the collection of foreign decisions is not large, CanLII will on request add cases that are of interest to Canadian legal practitioners.
(And for all your regular British case law needs, there is always BAILII).
