Professor Paul Emond published the very first Emond casebook in 1978. That text, and the ones that followed, were soon adopted into classes at the University of Toronto, Osgoode Hall Law School, and other Canadian common law programs. In response, Professor Emond and his colleague Ann Montgomery founded what is now known as Emond Publishing with the goal of providing students with quality, Canadian-made resources.
Since then, we have worked to establish ourselves as one of Canada's leading independent legal publishers. As a medium-sized organization, we're able to offer the national presence and capabilities of a larger company without sacrificing the individual attention we give to each of our publications and customers. In 40 years of publishing, Emond has expanded to serve college, university, and professional markets. Our extensive catalogue includes textbooks, exam prep resources, CPD accredited video lectures, and legal handbooks that customers can rely on from backpack to briefcase.
Emond titles have received praise from various publications including The Globe and Mail, Queen's Law Journal, Canadian Law Library Review, Blue Line Magazine, and Paralegal Scope Magazine. We have also received multiple industry awards, including the 2018 Hugh Lawford Award for Excellence in Legal Publishing, the 2012 Donald Smiley Prize, and the 2011 Donner Prize.
After operating out of Toronto's Summerhill neighbourhood for many years, we relocated our head office to the Yonge and Eglinton area in 2018. This move allows us to continue developing quality publications that meet the evolving needs of Canadian students, instructors, and legal professionals. These opportunities to grow and succeed would not be possible without our readers, and we would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported us over the years.
TNT and Emond have partnered in creating three short videos focusing on bringing awareness to the workplace, using cannabis in the workplace and on how to conduct internal reviews if in management or supervisory position.
