O Juris-mas tree, O Juris-mas tree …

This year, the staff at the Manitoba Law Library have been busy!

In addition to our regular duties, this past week we put up a Christmas tree. Well actually … a Juris-mas tree! Using old editions of the Corpus Juris Secundum, we set up a neat, festive feature that has been capturing the attention of everyone here.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for a holiday celebration on Wednesday, December 20th between 2 and 4. You’ll be able to check out the tree for yourself while enjoying some festive cheer.
