The Library holds approximately 16,000 monographic titles in law (both print and e-book). This collection will grow to support the Faculty of Law’s research, teaching and study needs. Most print volumes continue to be housed in the main Library, with a small core collection available in the Law Library. In addition to monographs, the collection also includes print copies of Federal and Ontario legislation as well as key case law reporters. The Law Library has acquired access to all of the essential online collections of primary and secondary legal materials (campus-wide access to Canadian, US Commonwealth and international materials via Lexis, Westlaw, ProView, Hein, JustisOne, LLMC, Kluwer Law Online, etc.)
