The Law Connection Partnership
The Law Connection is produced by The Centre for Education, Law and Society (CELS) at Simon Fraser University and the Law Courts Education Society of British Columbia. The Centre for Educational Technology at Simon Fraser University provides technical support and in-kind support for hosting the website. Together, these partners provide a timely educational tool on current issues in law.

History
The Law Connection was introduced in 1996 by CELS as a way to communicate legal information and lesson ideas to teachers and students. Early funding for the Law Connection came from the The Law Foundation of British Columbia, The Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia, The Notary Foundation, Legal Services Society of British Columbia, Heritage Canada, Multiculturalism Canada and Simon Fraser University. The Law Connection was inactive between January 2000 and September 2002 while CELS resolved technical difficulties and developed a new partnership with the Law Courts Education Society. Today, the Law Connection: Current Issues in Law offers a series of feature articles and lesson ideas around topical legal themes. Plus, we continue to offer Beagle Bytes, an interactive forum where teachers and students may ask legal professionals questions related to the feature articles.
