Student Access Program 2016-2017

Canadian professors and their students are invited to join the Lancaster House Student Online Access Program, giving you access to ALL of our online publications at no cost. If you are instructing a course in the area of labour law, labour arbitration, industrial relations, collective bargaining, human rights law, or occupational health and safety in the upcoming 2017/2018 academic year, then we encourage you to take advantage of this special offer.

By choosing to do so, you and your students will receive access, at no cost, to three essential online resources:

First ResortTM is an online, cross-linked database of all Lancaster House reports, with links to the full text of decisions on CanLII (where available). First ResortTM presents key labour and employment law decisions, with commentary and analysis for twenty different databases, each of which covers a discrete area of labour and employment law.

You and your students will also have access to the complete online library of all volumes of the Canadian Labour & Employment Law Journal and the Labour Arbitration Yearbook. Our database is cross-linked with CanLII decisions and is searchable by keyword, jurisdiction, and decision. You and your students may read case summaries and full decisions online, or print them for future reference.

The updated second edition of Leading Cases on Labour Arbitration Online is an online version of the popular Leading Cases on Labour Arbitration text, written by Professor Brian Etherington of the University of Windsor and Arbitrator Morton Mitchnick. It consists of leading cases, identified by the authors, on hundreds of labour arbitration topics. The leading cases are summarized, a key passage is provided, and you will be able to view the full text of the case in PDF format as well. The publication can be accessed online through a table of contents, an index, or a keyword search.

Contract Clauses Online, written by Jeffrey Sack & Peter Neumann, is Canada's major text on collective agreement language. It provides authoritative commentary and actual contract clauses from current collective agreements negotiated across Canada in both the public and private sectors to help you choose which clauses to negotiate, draft your own contract language to accurately reflect your intent, and understand how arbitrators will interpret the language you use. This fully searchable online service will be updated regularly with new clauses, commentary on the latest arbitration awards, and legislative changes that affect collective bargaining.

We believe that these online resources can be a valuable research tool, enriching your coursework and providing students with exposure to one of the most popular and data-rich websites in the area of Canadian labour law and industrial relations in Canada. All we require from you in order to provide you and your students with access to our online resources is 1) the name of the course, 2) when it is being offered, and 3) your student list, with both names and e-mail addresses provided. We will then send you an e-mail with password and login information.

Please feel free to share this offer with any of your colleagues who you believe might benefit from this program. Simply forward us their contact information or ask them to contact Roshien Asanta at rasanta@lancasterhouse.com or 416-977-6618 ext. 216.
