Canada’s pathbreaking vendor-neutral legal citation standard, and CanLII’s innovative RefLex citator, are the topics of Ivan Mokanov’s new post, entitled Environmentally-Friendly Citations, on the VoxPopuLII blog, published by the Legal Information Institute at Cornell University Law School.
Mr. Mokanov’s post describes the origins of the neutral standard, its benefits, its implementation by CanLII, and its widespread adoption. The post also discusses the development of and workflow for CanLII’s RefLex online citator.
Because the post discusses technical, policy, and user issues, the post should be of interest to legal information systems administrators and developers, policy advocates, legal information professionals, and all users of CanLII.
