The Law Library is open Monday to Friday (9:00 am – 4:30 pm), excluding statutory holidays. Members and approved paralegals/law clerks/law students can access the facility during those hours. After-hours access is also available for members.

Members of the public are encouraged to make an appointment by calling (709) 753-7770. Please view the Research Assistance for the Public section below to access a series of useful links and helpful resources.

  • Masking, social distancing, and proper hand washing/sanitizing are strongly encouraged for everyone who visits the Law Society building, including anyone entering the library.

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.
