Ideally suited for members of the criminal bar and judiciary, this collection covers discrete areas of criminal practice, anchored by the expertise of General Editors Brian H.

New Book Display: Manitoba Resources

The Great Library has been hosting a student from the Library and Information Technology program at Red River College for the past two weeks. Artemis Hedrich is in the final few months of the program, and this was an opportunity for her to see how a law library works. With help from legal information professional Allyssa McFadyen, she put together a display on the many resources of Manitoba law that are available both here at the Great Library and online.
