Lexbox: Easily Save and Cite Case Law and Legislation

How to create a list of legal citations
Published May 1, 2017 by Yolanda Koscielski

Lexbox is a new Google Chrome plug-in that helps you collect and cite legal cases and legislation.

Lexbox captures info from CANLII as well as a handful of official government websites, including the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court, and BC Laws.

Key features:

  • Save cases and legislation to a Lexbox folder
  • Share folders of saved cases and legislation
  • Keep track of your search history
  • Bookmark webpages in your Lexbox folders

Install the plug-in for your Google chrome browser, create an account, add cases and legislation to your folder, and then easily generate citations from your folder contents.

TIP: to generate a list of legal citations from a LexBox folder, select the icon for "download list of authorities" next to your folder. A list of citations will be generated in a Word file format.

  • Note that Word is the only export option at this time
  • There is no cross-compatibility or syncing available with other citation management software available
  • As with all citation generators, there are some glitches, so please proofread your citations to ensure accuracy
