Services for Persons with Disabilities

Law students with special needs are encouraged to consult the Associate Dean of Law.


Law Library staff are available to assist persons with disabilities with use of library materials, equipment, and access. Persons with special needs are invited to contact either the Head Law Librarian or the Reference/Instruction Librarian to discuss, in confidence, the ways that staff can help them use the library and its resources conveniently and efficiently.

There are some periods of time when only one library staff member is on duty. Most of these times are on weekends or in the evenings. If a person needing assistance is planning to come to the library outside of normal weekday business hours, we suggest that they contact the Head Law Librarian ahead of time to ensure that staff are available to assist, particularly with the use of the elevator or retrieval of library materials.

For more information about services available to UNB students with disabilities, contact the UNB Student Accessibility Centre.


The law school has a wheelchair ramp that provides access into the building. The elevators servicing the library may be accessed from the ground floor of the building. Since these elevators are locked, those wishing to use them are advised to contact the Law Library in advance during regular weekday business hours to make arrangements for elevator access.


The Law Library has two elevators that serve all levels of the library. Both elevators are normally locked. Those with short-term, ad hoc need to access the elevators should ask for assistance at the circulation desk. Students, faculty, and staff who needs elevator access long term may request an elevator key for the academic term by contacting the Law Library


The Law Library has a scanner workstation available for UNB student use. There is no cost to use the scanner. Users can send the scanned documents to themselves via email or save them to a flash drive. The scanner table is adjustable to a variety of heights to accommodate wheelchair access.

Study Rooms 

The Law Library has a number of conference rooms that are available for use by law students. Special-needs law students with long-term requirements for private study space may reserve a conference room for specific periods of a day, week, or month. Please contact either the Head Law Librarian or the Reference/Instruction Librarian to make arrangements.
