The Law Library contains materials for legal research: statutes, case report series, and textbooks, in both paper and computer formats. Computer workstations and photocopiers are provided for users.
The Law Society owns and operates a library of legal materials at the Sir Louis Henry Davies Courthouse, 42 Water Street, Charlottetown and a small library at the Prince County Courthouse in Summerside.
The Law Library at the courthouse in Charlottetown is available to the public every weekday afternoon and every Thursday morning, or by prior arrangement with the Librarian. The Librarian, Pam Borden, will be in the library at those times and can assist you with your legal research needs. She can obtain materials from other local libraries, and can arrange for an interlibrary loan of books and materials not available locally. To get permission to use the Law Library, you will need to fill out an application form and give it to the Librarian. There is no charge for use of the library; however, if you need photocopying, the usual charges will apply. The Application form can be obtained from the Commissionaires' desk at the courthouse, or from the Law Library. The form is also available for you to download here: Public Use of Library
The Law Library is available at all time for the Members of the Law Society, Articled Clerks, and Judges and staff at the courthouse. The Librarian, Pam Borden, can assist you with your requests for cases, textbook references, etc., by phone, fax, or by e-mail. She can arrange for interlibrary loans from other libraries and from local libraries, if needed.
