For Lawyers and Students

Legal Research

 

The Law Society Library supports the members' legal research needs. Members can access books, journals, law reports, statutes, and other legal reference materials in 17 locations throughout Saskatchewan. Library staff maintain a legal news service and several online caselaw and legislative research databases.  Case Mail is sent electronically to all members twice a month.  Subscriptions to several online research products are available to the members' desktops through the Members' Section

Library staff also provide research assistance to members in the following areas:

  1. How to use online resources
  2. Finding relevant textbooks
  3. Noting up cases, statutes or regulations
  4. Finding cases, reports or journal articles
  5. Tracing the history of a statute or regulation

The Library's budget is supported by a percentage of the members' annual fees and a grant from the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan. Any research assistance or document delivery fee is intended to defray the expenses of the Law Society Library on a cost-recovery basis only.
