About us

This endeavour started as a personal learning quest for information about the law and its origins. As a trustee in bankruptcy I had an appreciation for the law. As a history buff I had some inkling of how the law has shaped society and how society shaped the law. I decided to limit my quest to the law and its impact on Canada. I learned much and in some cases had my mind changed on important issues.

My research soon became a labour of love. That's when I decided to record what I learned in plain, straightforward English.

I eventually compiled more than 90 major categories of law, including a history of law, a dictionary of legal terminology, and a multitude of modern law categories. I researched information on the roots of our modern Canadian law going back to Hammurabi's code, the Bible, Law of Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome Law, Justinian's code, the Magna Carta, the Code Napoleon, the Royal Proclamation Act of 1763 and the British North America Act. Also compiled are links to Bar Associations; Law Courts; Provincial government web sites; Law Schools; Law Societies and Legal Aid. More than100 law quotes display randomly at the top of the home page each time the page is loaded.

The CanadianLawSite went live on the Internet in June, 2007. After a few months I started to receive emails thanking us for the information provided, or complimenting the site. These came from students, teachers and other laymen and also lawyers including legal academics.

In late, 2010 we started a major redesign of the CanadianLawSite. We added a Lawyer Locator, in 10 major practice areas. We made the site accessable to users with Smart Phones and added software so we can give every lawyer with a paid listing a personal Smart Phone App. This work was completed in mid February, 2011.

According to Alexa.com the CanadianLawSite is the # 1 commercial law site in Canada in number of visitors.

Please do not hesitate to email us if you have any questions or comments .
