Due to heating malfunctions (excessive heat) the Sir James Dunn Law Library is temporarily closed this morning Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014 until the problem can be addressed. We apologize for the inconvenience. Update: Repairs have begun and we anticipate the temperature improving over the next hour. We plan to reopen the library at 10:30am.
Stage 1: Demolition. Our old services area is gone! It was built in 1989 before computerization and did not meet today’s expectation for accessibility. Time for a change.
On Monday, September 16, 2013 we began our long awaited renovations. We will be creating a new Information Services Centre. Watch our blog as we chronicle the transformation and update you on construction news.

Always wanted to know what it’s like to go to law school?
Come and find out at a free series of engaging public lectures that will give you a taste of what a legal education is all about. There’s no cost to attend – and better still, no tests to write – just come with a curious ear to listen to fascinating lectures from some of the law school’s most talented faculty.
Lawyers are not usually reputed to be generous souls, but at the Schulich School of Law the Weldon Tradition of Unselfish Public Service is regularly put into practice. Recent visitors to the Law Library would have seen a mountain of groceries in our front lobby. Between Nov. 19th and Dec. 7th law students, faculty and staff gathered Food for FEED NOVA SCOTIA. This is an annual friendly competition, organized by the Law Students’ Society, and hosted in the Sir James Dunn Law Library. The Law School Community together gathered 1,813 items of food. This on top of the Movember campaign, Adopt-a-Family and other charitable causes.
Well done Schulich Law Community! We are looking forward to next year’s rematch!
The Sir James Dunn Law Library will be open regular hours Saturday, Oct. 9 and Sunday, Oct. 10, and 9am-10:45pm on Thanksgiving Monday, October 11, 2010.
The Sir James Dunn Law Library is very pleased to welcome our new Chief Law Librarian, Anne Matthewman. Anne began her position here on August 3.
