Why JTL?

Convenient Access and Powerful Tools

The Just the Laws collections are all about packaging and delivering the law in a convenient manner, with the right tools to allow you to quickly get to the information you’re looking for within thousands of pages of content, on any and all of your devices, in an integrated manner. You can add notes or highlights that will remain in place even as the source content is regularly updated. Our goal was to make access to the laws easy and effortless.

Regular Updates – Right from the Source

To populate the JTL collections, CogniLore has secured permission from the Government of Canada to reproduce the Department of Justice’s Consolidated Acts and Regulations. While the Department’s website is to be considered the only official source, the JTL collections are regularly updated from this content directly, and then published to our distribution server. The JTL App on your device detects when a subscription update is available and will prompt you to download the latest version – while preserving all of your notes and highlights from the previous version.

A Professional Grade Software Experience

JTL is powered by the proLibro digital distribution system – an extremely powerful reference tool that offers lightning fast access to reference information – even those that consist of thousands of pages of content. Designed as the best in breed software for digital publishing, we’re proud to bring you Just the Laws using the full features of this cutting-edge technology. For more information on the proLibro system, visit www.prolibro.com.

Developed by Digital Delivery System Experts

The proLibro system and JTL has been developed by CogniLore, a company recognized as an authority in the development of digital delivery systems. The CogniLore team has applied its deep understanding of search and content delivery technologies and the experience of having built some of the most accessed professional reference system available to create a high-performance solution for JTL.

Cohesive Multi-platform Access

When we set out to create proLibro – the underlying technology that powers the JTL system – we wanted to create a solution that would allow you to pick up and access your content on any device, anywhere you happened to be. This led us to build a system that enables access without an Internet connection, that works equally well on PCs, tablets, and smartphones, and that can synchronize the information you create by using the product – your action history and your annotations – to all of your devices, so that you’re always up to date, no matter when, where, or on what device you need to access your information.

Continuously Improving

At CogniLore, we see the JTL system launch as the starting point, not the destination. We want to make sure that we continue to add features and content that increases the value for our customers over time. We look forward to communicating with you and understanding what you need to make Just the Laws more useful to your daily workflow. Feel free to reach out to us via the Contact Form to let us know what you think of the system and how we can make it even better.
