The Law Society of Upper Canada – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

Last week my colleague Tariq and I traveled to Toronto for the International Association of Law Libraries’ (IALL) 31st annual course on international law and legal information.  Living up to its name, attendance at the conference was made up of law librarians from six continents representing twenty countries.

As is the custom, the theme of the annual course focused on the law of the host country.  This year’s theme was Canada: The Cultural Mosaic and International Law.  Jointly hosted by the Faculty of Law, University of Toronto and Osgoode Law School, York University, the conference provided a wide variety of programs ranging from Canadian constitutional law to Canadian approaches to international human rights law, aboriginal law, and anti-terrorism law.

This week’s Pic of the Week shows the Main Reading Room of the Great Library of the Law Society of Upper Canada.  This inspiring space was the location of the registration desk on the opening evening of the conference.

Main Reading Room

It has been said, and I think you will agree, if you had not entered this room with the intention of researching law, you would be persuaded to before leaving.


  1. Are Canadian judges members of any law society?
