Commercial Law Quarterly Online Library now open for you to explore

To begin our year of 50th birthday celebrations, the CLA is delighted to announce the launch of the Commercial Law Quarterly online library. Over the past few months every issue from the first to the latest has been scanned into the database (thank you Michelle Lee!) and is now available for download. The library covers over 25 years of legal thought on every conceivable aspect of commercial law. You are able to search by issue, subject or author. The library is open to members and non-members of the CLA. Downloads are complementary for members and a charge applies for non-members. You’ll also find a large number of issues of The Bulletin in the library. The Bulletin was the precursor to CLQ and dates from the early days of the CLA to 1987. Unfortunately, we no longer have a copy of every issue. We would be very interested in hearing from anyone who still has copies of The Bulletin so we can add them to the library. We invite you to take this opportunity to explore for yourself.
