This is a guide to the criminal law materials available through the TMU Library for students, faculty, and staff.
Encyclopedias are a good starting point, as they provide a broad overview of criminal law issues. The Canadian Encyclopedic Digest and Halsbury's Laws of Canada include links to relevant primary sources such as case law and legislation.
Books are available on a variety of criminal law topics, including annotated Criminal Codes.
Links are also provided to criminal law databases, journals, and precedents and forms.
For more on legal databases, case law, legislation, and scholarly journal articles see the Law Research Guide.
Research help is available for students, faculty, and staff of TMU with legal research questions.
For one-on-one assistance in refining a legal research topic, finding legal information, and using databases and other resources, book a research appointment. Currently, all Law Library research help appointments are being conducted virtually through Zoom. Email the law librarians or book a time directly in their calendars during office hours:
John Papadopoulos is available at email@example.com, with bookable office hours
Lisa Levesque is available at firstname.lastname@example.org, with bookable office hours
Sara Klein is available at email@example.com, with bookable office hours
Email: for general inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with accessing or using legal information resources and one of the Law Library staff will respond to you.
