The library maintains a collection of 5,000+ items in a variety of formats to meet the research and reference needs of Nunavut’s Legal Community. The focus of the collection is on Canadian primary legal materials. Primary legal materials include case citation publications, textbook/practice guides, and federal and territorial legislation. The collection focuses on meeting the ever changing needs of the practice and interpretation of current law rather than the academic study of the law. Historical items are collected only whereas they are needed, such as older copies of the Canadian Criminal Code. Materials on the law and the North or Inuit relations with the law are collected when and where available.
