Alberta Law Libraries is a provincial network of law libraries existing to provide research support and information services to the legal community (including the Judiciary, Members of the Bar, Crown Prosecutors and Justice Department Employees), self represented litigants and all Albertans. Alberta Law Libraries was formed in 2009, when the Alberta Law Society Libraries (serving members of the bar and public) were joined with Alberta Court Libraries (serving the judiciary and crown) under one leadership.
Located in court houses and provincial buildings across the province, Alberta Law Libraries connects Albertans with reliable sources of legal information. The libraries provide access to an impressive array of electronic legal research tools and a vast print collection that contains materials considered essential to the practice of law in Alberta. In addition to case law and legislation from across Canada, the libraries contain a broad range of legal treatises, law periodicals, loose-leaf services and continuing legal education materials produced by the Legal Education Society of Alberta (LESA) and the Canadian Bar Association (Alberta). We are actively engaged in educating clients on the identification and effective use of authoritative information sources.
The libraries receive funding from Alberta Justice, the Alberta Law Foundation and the Law Society of Alberta. Access to legal reference assistance and Alberta Law Libraries’ collections is available to all Albertans. Alberta Law Libraries is your legal information navigator.
