Courthouse Libraries BC recently announced the launch of its Criminal Law Practice Portal. Joining five other practice portals (Civil Litigation, Family Law, Personal Injury, Practice Management & Technology and Wills & Estates), the Criminal Law Practice Portal is “designed to address the information needs of the criminal practitioner community”.
It includes recent news, blog posts, and a “curated resources” section that helps users find up-to-date editions of core texts, as well as three new tools: hearing lists that bring daily court hearings for all levels of court and all locations together in one place; rangefindr, a new, intuitive criminal sentencing quantum tool recently added to the Reading Room, along with a short training video on how to use the service; and a downloadable accredited CPD study kit.
The portal was developed in consultation with lawyers and judges across the province. Read all about the new Criminal Law Practice Portal at The Stream.
