The Canadian Journal of Family Law, one of the first family law journals in Canada, is now available online to the public, free of charge. This is the only family law journal in Canada to move to full open-access and relatively free of copyright restrictions.

“With the high number of self-litigants in family law cases, having scholarship available in a mouse-click will be of great service to people across Canada," explained Erez Aloni, Associate Professor, Allard School of Law. “And the move to open access will give scholars, policymakers, and other stakeholders across the globe—who previously may not have had access to the Journal—an opportunity to learn about Canadian family law.”

“The move towards open access is central in the current context of Canadian family law,” added Régine Tremblay, Assistant Professor at the Allard School of Law. “Making scholarship openly accessible will contribute to the betterment of the family law system by making information accessible."
