For further information on how to hire a lawyer, or for specific legal advice, please contact the Public Legal Information Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (PLIAN).

Any member of the public using the Law Library’s services must ensure the information is applicable to their specific situation and acceptable in the Newfoundland and Labrador courts.

What We CANNOT DO for You:
Members of the public can ask a library or legal information related question.
We specialize in information about local Law Library resources, collections, facilities, and LSNL services. We also answer questions and comments about library-supported technologies, including our website and online resources.
We work to answer all questions to the best of our ability and within legal restrictions, however, some questions are best handled by outside organizations. If we can’t answer your question, we’ll refer you to someone who can.
