"Stopping the clock"


According to Cheryl Berard, one of the QL trainers, QL has "recently discovered that the Help link is not stopping the clock. The clock is not always running however – if you perform an action such as those in 'Find a Document', there is a 'transactional' cost incurred instead. Our systems people are currently working on the problem, but in the meantime we are advising customers to sign off and then sign back on if they need to pause. The History feature can be used to go back to a search if this case."




Search strategies



In old Quicklaw, some of us were very geared to databases and database codes. New Quicklaw has tried to de-emphasize codes, but it is still possible to find them. For example, if you are looking for something in the WCBs, or the ACWSs, go to the "Source Directory" tab, and then put in WCB or ACWS in the "Find a source" box in the upper right. To translate the old database code that you know into the new source name, use the Source Concordance provided by LexisNexis Quicklaw.


SCC Decisions

The SCC Applications for Leave to Appeal, and LawNet are now databases that we can save as favourites. You can search them for the most recent additions, download them into a file, and voila!!!! I can append everything to an email. The same goes for Reasons in Appeals (SCJ database).


Caribbean Database

The database containing the Caribbean cases (I think it was database ECSJ in the old Quicklaw) is not on the new Quicklaw. According to our sales rep, responsibility of the database was given to one country, so LexisNexis UK was chose to oversee it. Since the database was not updated after 2003, it was seen as "out of date" and has been pulled off for now. It is up to LexisNexis UK as to whether they reinstate it. My guess is it is probably low priority compared to getting the UK materials prepared for the launch. Is this important to anyone? How can we put some pressure directly on LN UK?
