Change of Address: O’Brien’s Forms is Moving to Westlaw Next!

August 17, 2020

By Alan Kilpatrick

Earlier this year, Thomson Reuters announced that the popular online version of O’Brien’s Encyclopedia of Forms was moving to the Westlaw Next (WLN) platform.  Incorporating O’Brien’s content directly into WLN’s powerful platform offers enhanced searchability, usability, and integration for practitioners, researchers, and law librarians alike.  You can check out the increased functionality you’re gaining through this “change of address” with this helpful chart.

Over the past month, your Legal Resources staff have been hard at work negotiating with Thomson Reuters to add the O’Brien’s content to the Law Society’s province wide WLN subscription.  We’re excited to let you know that you can now access O’Brien’s Encyclopedia of Forms directly from the WLN homepage, simply by selecting the WLN link in the Members’ Resource Section.

WLN, remotely accessible to all Saskatchewan members through the Members’ Resource Section, is already home to a multiple of practitioner focused resources such as the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest, Canadian Abridgement, Source Products, and more.  Starting today, it going to be even easier for you to access the great forms and precedents that make up O’Brien’s Encyclopedia of Forms.

It’s all part of our commitment to support you, maximize your access to resources, and aggressively innovate the future of your Law Society Library.  We’ll continue to add value to your legal work during this uncertain time. Never fear, we’ve got your back.

Learn more about this change by watching this brief YouTube video, O’Brien’s Encyclopedia of Forms on WestlawNext Canada (11:51), prepared by Thomson Reuters:
