Access to the Law Policy

The Law Society of Upper Canada’s Access to the Law Policy supports users of the Great Library who require access to legal materials while respecting the copyright of the publishers of these materials, in keeping with the fair dealing provisions in sections 29 and 29.1 of the Copyright Act. The county and district law libraries and LibraryCo Inc. endorse and adopt this policy which is a companion piece to Custom Copying for Staff. This latter document is a policy statement to assist lawyers and law library staff in the county and district law libraries regarding copyright privileges and obligations under the Copyright Act.

These documents are posted in all county and district law libraries in Ontario.
