Law Day Winnipeg

Law Day, held in commemoration of the signing of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, will take place on Sunday, April 15, 2018. Presented by the Manitoba Bar Association and the Manitoba Department of Justice, the Law Courts themselves will be open to the public for tours, mock trials, debates, presentations and demonstrations (including demonstrations by a drug detector dog).

The library itself will be open for viewing, although no library staff will be available that day.

If you’d like to know more about Law Day Winnipeg, please check out the Manitoba Bar Association’s website. Admission is free, and if you require disability accommodation, they ask that you e-mail them directly to the e-mail listed on the previous link provided.

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.
