Halsbury's Laws of England - 3d ed Free with cost of shipping

From Ronn Cheney:

Good day all:

I have a lawyer retiring at end of year and has a complete set (46 volumes) of Halsbury’s Laws of England - 3d ed + the Canadian Converter supplements.

For the cost of shipping they will be available until end of December.

Our local recycling depot will not take books (Go figure) so he would like them to go to an inside location that is warm and fuzzy.

After all it is Christmas.

Thanks Ronn Cheney, Law Librarian

Senate Page Program is Recruiting - ideal for aspiring law librarians

If you know a current grade 12 student or an in-progress undergrad student who aspires to be a law librarian/lawyer/paralegal/legal assistant, I encourage you to send them the attached Senate Page Program recruiting information.

I was a Senate Page for two years and it was a fantastic experience because I was so interested in political science. I definitely recommend it over the rival House of Commons Page Program. Typically, Senate Pages will go on to work in public policy, law, or non-profit management.

Please feel free to have any interested young people in your life contact me if they have any questions.
