Climate Change and Law Collection (Brill)
This comprehensive collection of climate change and law documents contains original source, non-edited and non-redacted “grey literature” on climate change and the law, including corporate law, environmental law, and human rights law. Materials in the collection originate from a wide range of organizations in the public and private sector, institutions, and/or individuals, world-wide. (The Library is trialing this product; we welcome feedback about it.)
HeinOnline now features a large number of provincial statutes in their Provincial Statutes of Canada collection.

Historical and revised content only is available for Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.

With exams soon upon us, the Library’s extended hours begin on March 20, 2017. For more information, please see here.
