Common List of Authorities

  • December 07, 2015

Together with lawyers from Justice Canada, the Canadian Bar Association has compiled a common list of authorities for use in Federal Courts immigration and aboriginal law proceedings. These lists streamline books of authorities that lawyers must produce, saving time and saving paper.

A Federal Court Notice to Parties and the Profession indicates that only quoted passages from cases in the Common List of Authorities need be reproduced in books of authorities. The Federal Courts has made copies of the common authorities available to judges in every centre where the Court conducts hearings.
