Supreme Court Library Tours


by Katie Tribe

Just a note that the Supreme Court of Canada Library recently notified us that tours of the Court and library are being offered to articling students next month. I’ve taken the tour and can vouch that both the Court and library are fascinating and beautiful; since tours of the Supreme Court aren’t available very often, I definitely recommend attending or sharing this opportunity with the students at your firm.

Tours are being arranged for the following dates and times:

French session:

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 at 9:30 AM – Court Tour
Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 at 10:00 AM – Library Tour

English session:

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 at 10:30 AM – Court Tour
Tuesday, September 14th, 2010 at 11:00 AM – Library Tour

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010 at 9:30 AM – Court Tour
Wednesday, September 15th, 2010 at 10:00 AM – Library Tour

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010 at 10:30 AM – Court Tour
Wednesday, September 15th, 2010 at 11:00 AM – Library Tour

When attending the tour, simply meet the guides in the Grand Entrance Hall just inside the main front entrance of the building. Each session lasts approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

If you or someone you know is interested in attending, contact the Supreme Court Library’s Reference Desk by email at library@scc-csc.gc.ca prior to September 7th indicating your time and language preference.The Reference Desk will contact you for confirmation after receiving your email.

I highly recommend scheduling some time to check out this beautiful building and library! Of course, the CCLA Library is also offering tours this fall, so be sure to get in touch with us if you’d like to stop by!
