Continuing Legal Education (CLE)

CLE material can be downloaded (free of charge) for articles published in the Law Society CLE binders beginning in 2004.  Any articles published within the last 18 months are pay per view, but prior to that time articles are free of charge in electronic form.

To access articles go onto AccessCLE website (http://accesscle.lsuc.on.ca ) and do a keyword search. If you find information in a CLE publication that appears to be what you want, and if it is within the right time frame, you can download the pdf. If the article is within the last 18 months time period, you can preview it to make sure it is what you need and either choose to buy it online, or come to the law library and find it in our collection.
