Canadian law quick start
The Bodleian Law Library collection of Canadian law books have shelf marks beginning Cw. Can. (The Cw. in front of the Cw. Can. shelfmarks refers to the Commonwealth of Nations of which Canada is a member. For more information about the Commonwealth of Nations, see the Commonwealth Secretariat website.)
Cw. Can. 510 - Indicates books on federal Canadian law, or the law of the common law provinces.
Cw. Can. 610 - Indicates commentary relating to the law of Quebec
In the library catalogue some materials have "(sec coll)" after the shelfmark, e.g. Cw Can. 510 O81a2 (sec coll). This designates older material - often superseded editions.
Please ask a member of staff for directions to these collections when in the Law Bod.
