Members of the law school can contact Sooin or Susan or John in the library for assistance in setting up an e-mail alert.
Law School Exams for the last five years are now available in a searchable database via e.legal. Rather than the simple chronological list of list from previous years, the new exam database is searchable by professor, subject or course title and academic year. Students can access the database through the Library’s student portal or from the e.legal drop down menu on the homepage.
e.legal is available by password to the U of T Faculty of Law Community only. Incoming students will receive their e.legal passwords via e-mail in early September.
