Legal Resource Centre


This is our 'library'. It contains articles, documents and links to a wide variety of materials about law and justice. The Resource Centre offers selected shortcuts to those resources that we consider the best in the field.

The ACJNetAlberta Resource Centre was supported through funding provided by the Sandra Garvie Memorial Fund.

Sandra Garvie was the librarian at the Legal Resource Centre of the Faculty of Extension of the University of Alberta from 1976-1979. She was a cutting edge librarian, instrumental in establishing the library collection as one of the pre-eminent public legal education collections in Canada. She also spearheaded the Library Materials Placement Project which enabled over 20 Alberta public libraries to receive grants from the Alberta Law Foundation to begin or to improve their legal collections. She assisted these libraries to select the materials and also coordinated the allied training program for librarians. This program established a benchmark for public legal education practice in Alberta. Sandra was also closely involved in the other activities of the Legal Resource Centre, and thus was a pioneer in the early development of public legal education theory and practice.

Sandra was dedicated to the idea of increasing public access to legal information and to developing the skills of non-lawyers in both using and influencing the legal systems. She brought a high level of competence, energy, innovation and courage to her work and in so doing, served the University of Alberta and the public of Alberta in an outstanding manner.
