Welcome to the DRLA


Mission Statement

The Durham Region Law Association Library's primary mission is to support, in both a print and digital capacity, the citation research, reference and educational needs of the Lawyers who are members. In addition, as the only research level law library in Durham Region, it is an important community resource hub for networking, professional and social gatherings. Within the limits of its resources, the Law Library strives to serve the legal information needs of the entire legal community and the practicing bar, as well to promote the most up to date sources and services available.

The Law Library is committed to building and maintaining a hybrid collection that includes a balance of electronic, print, and other non-print material, and to providing research assistance and information access services that promote the effective use of the Library's resources by its users within the physical environment of the Law Library building. The development of the collection is based around the needs of the lawyers within our community.

Our Library & Lounge Areas are strictly for:

All members in good standing in the Association.

Lawyers who are members of the Law Society of Upper Canada practicing outside the Regional
Municipality of Durham.

All Justices of the Ontario Court of Justice and Superior Court of Justice.

Articling Students

As the librarian and website designer, I am committed to servicing all your library needs which include setting up your electronic devices for WIFI access and assisting with teaching online research skills.
