AFTER HOURS ACCESS GUIDELINES

If you do not have a law society card, you must contact The Law Society of Manitoba to see if access to the library will be granted. You will be asked to put your request in writing with details about why you are requesting access. If your request is granted, you will be given a letter to present to Law Courts Security when you request access after regular business hours.
  • Manitoba Justice - You must have your Government photo pass.
  • Articling Students - You must ensure that your name is on the list of articling students compiled by The Law Society of Manitoba. If your name is not on the list, contact The Law Society.
  • University of Manitoba Law Students - You must have your name on the list compiled by the Faculty of Law, and provided to The Law Society of Manitoba. If your name is not on the list, contact the Faculty of Law.

The following additional persons may qualify for after hours access:

Other Law Students - If you are a student at another university law school, you must contact The Law Society of Manitoba to see if access to the library will be granted.
