Collection Spotlight - Indigenous Collection

Consistent with our commitment to provide resources that help BC's lawyers practice competently, we continually expand our collection to include educational materials related to Truth and Reconciliation.

Indigenous inter-cultural competency is considered by the Law Society of BC to be a necessary component of overall competency to practice law. These resources help lawyers expand their knowledge beyond the LSBC's mandatory course.

If you are thinking about Reconciliation and Indigenous issues in Canada, we have two great starter books available in many locations or by order to any of our branches.
