Secondary Sources – Halsbury's Laws of Canada

Halsbury's Laws of Canada is a LexisNexis publication that, once complete, will consist of 57 hardbound volumes.

The volumes are arranged alphabetically by subject and divided into headings, paragraphs, and sections.

Some people find Halsbury's Laws of Canada to be more approachable than the CED as it more closely conforms to the format of a traditional, subject-based encyclopedia.
