The Law Library has existed at the University since ca. 1977, shortly after the inception of the Faculty of Law. Following a major donation from a local law firm in 2005, the library was named the Bennett Jones Law Library. Administered under the auspices of the University of Calgary Libraries, the Law Library has always had its own librarian specializing in the needs of the Faculty.
The Bennett Jones Law Library provides legal information resources and services to support the teaching and research programs of the Faculty of Law and the University of Calgary. It also helps meet the legal information needs of Calgary's legal community. For members of the Law Society of Alberta, the library offers a free library card, reduced photocophy costs, and document delivery services. In addition, it is open to any member of the public requiring access to the collection.
Assistance is provided in identifying and locating sources of legal information and other appropriate library materials. The Bennett Jones Law Library has a rare book collection which contains publications on such subjects as Australian Law, Constitutional History, and Wills & Estates. An archival copy of each thesis from the LL.M. program is available for viewing in the library only.
