Legal Citation Help==About the Canadian Cases Search Form==The Canadian Cases search form is located in the International Legal section of LexisNexis Academic. You can perform various tasks on the US Canadian Cases search form such as:
*Find a Case by Legal Citation*Find a Case on a specific topic*Find a case in a specific Canadian Province by a particular judge*Find a case that occurred during a certain period of time
Please see the article on Legal Citation Formats.
==Search Terms==The "Search terms" section allows you to input your own key terms. In this search box, you can put words or phrases that convey a particular topic, like "abortion." For example, if you need to find articles by a specific citation, type the citation in the guided search box. In addition to a full text search, use the guided boxes to find cases:
*by Citation*by Case Name*by Legal Topics*by Judge*by Jurisdiction
==Specify Date==One of the most efficient ways to narrow your results set is by specifying the date. If you're researching a current event, try narrowing the date to the last 6 months. If you're researching a past event, use the "Is Between..." option to set the dates yourself. Choosing a time period to search through will change your results drastically. You will be much more likely to find relevant results.
==Jurisdiction==Select a Jurisdiction from the drop-down box.
