The Law Society Law Library provides the Newfoundland and Labrador legal community with access to a comprehensive collection of Canadian and select U.K. and U.S. legal materials in both print and electronic formats.

In the interest of public education and access to justice, there is limited access available to the public who are conducting legal research. While not being able to provide legal advice, library staff are happy to assist the public with access to legal information in our print resources, and guidance in starting legal research projects.
