PRESS RELEASE - June 7, 2004
The Canadian College of Construction Lawyers proudly announces
the donation, establishment and dedication of a Construction
Law Library as part of the collection of the Bora Laskin Library
of the Faculty of Law, University of Toronto.
The Construction Law Library consists of topical books, report
series, looseleaf services, newsletters, unpublished manuscripts,
and other resources, and, at almost 350 volumes to date, is
one of the largest and most important collections of construction
law materials in Canada.
Donations of construction law materials from Canada, the
U.S. and the U.K. were received from Fellows of The Canadian
College of Construction Lawyers and the American College of
Construction Lawyers, from publishers (LexisNexis Canada Inc.
and Carswell), and from the private collections of prominent
fellows of the Bench and Bar.
Access to the Faculty of Law's "Construction Law Research
Guide", which was prepared to showcase the collection,
is available at http://www.law-lib.utoronto.ca/construction/.

Joint ACCL-CCCL conference scheduled
The Canadian College of
Construction Lawyers will be participating in a joint
conference with the American College of Construction
Lawyers, to be held at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables,
Florida from Thursday February 26 to Sunday February 29, 2004.
Law Mini-Library Initiative Launched
The CCCL is embarking on a new pilot project on the initiative
of Fellow and Past President Harvey J. Kirsh which aims to
raise the profile of construction law in Canada. In this context,
it is our goal to set up a number of construction law mini-libraries
in law schools (and possibly other faculties) across the country.
The Bora Laskin Library of the University of Toronto Law School
was the first to indicate that it would be interested in housing
one such mini-library in its main library collection and has
received a first shipment of donated works.
