Why do I need a library access card and how do I get one?

The Law Library and the Law Society are locked during business hours for staff safety. The library access card provides members with access to the Law Library both during business hours and in the evenings and on weekends for research access. Access cards do not provide access to the upper floors of the Law Society at any time.

Access cards are available, free of charge, to judges and lawyers who are members of the Law Society of Newfoundland & Labrador, and to registered law students by contacting the library at . If you are practicing outside the greater St. John’s area contact us to have an access card sent to you.

Out of province lawyers cannot have an access card, however, they can make use of the Law Library during our open hours.

As the library is locked during business hours, we recommend all Law Society members bring their access card with them.
