This is a guide to the key wills and estates law materials available through the TMU Library.
Researchers who are investigating a new topic in wills and estates are encouraged to start with an encyclopedia, either the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest or Halsbury's. These resources located in Westlaw and Lexis databases link to relevant primary source materials such as case law and legislation.
Books are also available on wills and estates topics, including required reading.
For more on legal databases, case law, legislation, and scholarly journal articles, see the Law Research Guide.
Research help is available for students, faculty, and staff of TMU with legal research questions.
Research help appointments: For one-on-one assistance in refining a legal research topic, finding legal information, and using databases and other resources, book a research appointment. Currently, all Law Library research help appointments are being conducted virtually through Zoom. Email the law librarians or book a time directly in their calendars during office hours (John Papadopoulos is available at firstname.lastname@example.org, with bookable office hours, and Lisa Levesque is available at email@example.com, with bookable office hours).
Email: please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with accessing or using legal information resources and one of the Law Library staff will respond to you.
