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 can borrow materials, including Reserve books, get reference advice and also find the Law School’s IT support.  Behind the desk is our Short Term/Course Reserve area, containing the most recent key treatises and required course materials.  Across from the desk is the Information Commons, which features 30 desktop computers for your use. In the alcove by the elevator you will find a state of the art book scanner and a new public printer/photocopier.

Torys Hall, the Library’s magnificent reading room on level 02 (the main floor) provides an impressive space for quiet study.  Next to the Reading Room in a small alcove on the other side of the grand staircase are our printing and copying facilities.

On the lower level (level 01) of the Library you will find most of our books and print reporters.  Our legislative materials are on level 2, and our print collection of law journals sits on level 3.

The library has 11 bookable group study rooms available for collaborative study. Three group study rooms are on level 02 adjacent to the reading room. An additional 8 group study rooms are on the top floor. The rooms are reserved for use by current students of the Faculty of Law, and can be booked online for groups of 4 or more.

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!
