Law Library

The Library provides high quality legal information services to the profession.

Under Alert Level 2, the New Zealand Law Society libraries have re-opened. The Auckland, Wellington and Canterbury libraries are open to members from 9.00am - 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. There will be no after-hours access to the libraries until further notice.

Entry is by card access only. This will provide the librarian with an accurate record of who has used the library in case contact tracing is required. If you do not have an access card and wish to apply for one, please contact your local library.

Lawyers rooms/libraries which are situated in courthouses are accessible during the opening hours of the court. Hamilton branch library (which is in the branch office building) can be accessed with a door code from 7am-5.30pm. Please fill in the Contact Tracing Sheet. Contact the branch 07 838 0264 if you require the code.

Hand sanitiser and wipes are supplied and lawyers are responsible for wiping down the keyboards and monitors.

Please contact us with any research or document delivery requests at, or or submit a request online.
