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The Construction Law Library consists of topical books, report series, looseleaf services, newsletters, unpublished manuscripts, and other resources, and, at almost 350 volumes to date, is one of the largest and most important collections of construction law materials in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/.

Construction 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.
