To all new law students:
Welcome to the Bora Laskin Law Library.
The librarians and staff of the Law Library look forward to working with you as you complete your legal studies. Our library occupies three levels of the Pavilion wing in the Jackman Law Building. Here you will have access to quiet study space, our extensive law collection, the Information Commons, and the expertise of our librarians and staff.
The entrance to the Library is located just off the Atrium on level 02. As you enter the Library you will find the Library Services desk, where you will be able to borrow books, get reference advice as well as IT support. Behind the desk is our Short Term/Course Reserve area which contains most of the key treatises to which you will refer to during your studies. Across from the desk is the Information Commons which holds 30 desktop computers for your use as well as a state of the art book scanner.
Torys Hall, the Library’s magnificent reading room, is also located on level 02 and provides an impressive space for quiet study. Next to the Reading Room in a small alcove you will find our printing and copying facilities. Wireless printing from your laptop is available.
On the lower level (level 01) of the Library you will find our monograph print collection. Level 02 is where you’ll find our collection of legislative materials. The top level (level 03) hosts our collection of law journals.
The library has a total of 11 bookable group study rooms available for collaborative study. Three group study rooms are located on level 02 adjacent to the reading room. An additional 8 group study rooms are located on the top floor.
For more information about the library’s resources and policies please check out our website at http://library.law.utoronto.ca. In particular I’d like to draw your attention to our services to law students located at http://library.law.utoronto.ca/services/services-students.
The Library’s strongest asset is its staff. We will advise you on research strategy, find the most relevant materials to assist with your course work, show you how to get the best out of our electronic resources, solve any tricky citation problems that you can throw at us and sometimes just provide a sympathetic ear when you need one. For a full list of the Library staff please check out Who We Are. We are also available online: come visit us on Facebook, Twitter and our award winning Blog.
During your time here the Law Library will become a trusted resource, a resting stop between classes and a home away from home. Welcome and best of luck with your law school career!

Although we moved back into the library in February, we have still been very much in a construction zone since then with work on the building exterior and interior ongoing. But it looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The construction hoardings have been taken down and work on the building’s landscaping is moving apace.

- The EU Referendum Special by Paul Magrath (Incorporated Council of Law Reporting)
- The UK’s EU referendum: All you need to know
- A background guide to “Brexit” from the European Union from the Economist
- For some discussion of the constitutional implications
- Pulling the Article 50 ‘Trigger’: Parliament’s Indispensable Role by Nick Barber, Tom Hickman and Jeff King (UK Constitutional Law Association)
- and the impact on human rights
- What does Brexit have to do with human rights? by Tobias Locke (Oxford University Press)
- and on the economy
- Brexit: The Morning After by Paul Krugman (New York Times)

The Law Society of Upper Canada has recently created a guide entitled “Handling Everyday Legal Problems” as well as two fact sheets “What the Law Society does” and “Working with a lawyer or paralegal” in Cree, Oji-Cree and Northwestern Ojibwe, as well as in English and French as one of their recent Indigenous Initiatives.
The resources provide information about Law Society services and sources of free and low-cost legal information and advice and are geared towards Indigenous people and can be found on the Law Society’s Website at http://lsuc.on.ca/indigenous-initiatives/.
