About the LESA Library
The LESA Library is a convenient online resource providing you substantive legal information and practice management tips at your fingertips.
The Library’s contents include substantive legal information, practice management tips, fillable forms, and editable precedents. It includes downloadable PDFs all of LESA’s program papers from 2010 to present. The Library also includes the contents of the following LESA publications in searchable encyclopedia-style articles and downloadable PDF files:
- Alberta Civil Practice Manual
- Alberta Family Law Practice Manual
- Alberta Foreclosure Forms
- Alberta Real Estate Practice Manual
- Alberta Surrogate Forms
- Alberta Wills and Estates Practice Manual
- Business Law Fundamentals
- Collections Fundamentals
- Criminal Law Fundamentals
LESA Library content is regularly reviewed and updated by LESA staff and volunteer subject matter experts. As new papers are presented at our live programs, materials are uploaded to the Library. Customizable notifications can also be easily set up to inform users when changes are made to topics of interest, ensuring they are always up to date.
Since the Library is a dynamic, collaborative online resource, registered users are encouraged to help keep the Library’s information current. Users can edit pages and use the Library’s discussion pages to share precedents, suggestions, comments, and ideas with colleagues.
Annual subscriptions to the LESA Library start at just $795 + GST. This low price means that the thousands of pages of content in the Library cost about the same as a 2-day live program, 2 practice manuals, or the complete Alberta Law Fundamentals set, making the LESA Library a cost effective resource.
Annual subscriptions can be purchased individually or for a firm. Firm subscriptions rates are based on the number of registered users, where every lawyer who has been called to the bar in Alberta is registered as a distinct user in the LESA Library.
You can register for your subscription or renew online:
If your firm will have more than 51 users, please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org, 780.420.1987, or 1.800.282.3900 (toll-free in Alberta).
