What's in this guide

This research guide helps researchers to identify and locate the core materials needed for researching United Kingdom law. The Osgoode Hall Law School Library has a significant number of the United Kingdom legal materials in its collection. Canadian common law is rooted in English law, as evidenced by the ultimate appeal from the Supreme Court of Canada to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in England which existed prior to 1949, and by the formal reception of English law by each province entering Confederation. Many of the landmark cases still cited by Canadian courts today are English cases. Today English law is not binding, but it is still persuasive in Canadian courts, particularly in the absence of any Canadian primary legal sources.
