CanLII has posted an RFP on its site, seeking proposals for development of a new website that will operate as a portal for sharing information about Canadian court decisions. The RFP contemplates that legal professionals and academics would contribute the content, and that the content would be linked to court decisions on the CanLII site.
This project has exciting possibilities for enhancing CanLII’s content, and providing a publishing platform for the profession. Imagine being able to re-purpose various case comments, blog posts and newsletter columns written about an important case, so that CanLII users can directly access that commentary when viewing the case.
I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
