The Library’s contents include substantive legal information, practice management tips, and valuable resources, such as fillable forms and editable precedents. Some of this information can be found in the hundreds of seminar papers that you can download as PDFs. Currently papers are available from 2010 to present. The Library includes the contents of LESA’s practice manuals and fundamentals series in searchable encyclopedia-style articles.
- Alberta Civil Practice Manual
- Alberta Family Law Practice Manual
- Alberta Real Estate Practice Manual
- Alberta Wills and Estates Practice Manual
- Business Law Fundamentals
- Criminal Law Fundamentals
- Wills Fundamentals
You can access the Library anytime, anywhere. All you need is an internet connection and your computer or mobile device. With the Library, the latest information is at your fingertips the moment it’s updated.
LESA has volunteer subject matter experts who regularly review and update the practice manual content. As new seminar papers are presented at our live programs, materials that are available for subsequent purchase and distribution are uploaded to the Library.
You can even set customizable notifications to inform you when changes are made to topics of interest that you identify to ensure that you are always up-to-date.
Since the Library is a dynamic, collaborative online resource, registered users are also encouraged to help keep the Library’s information current. If you see something that needs to be edited, you can update the information yourself. You can also share precedents, suggestions, comments, and ideas with your colleagues using the Library’s discussion pages.
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 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:
- Single User ($795)
- 2–10 Users ($1,495)
- 11–25 Users ($2,995)
