It is Law Week at the Library

Until May 24 it is Law Week. Libraries and the legal profession each year promote to the community awareness and understanding of the law, the legal system, and the legal profession. Throughout the week on the library Facebook page there will be several websites to help you learn about the law. On the library website there is a list of helpful books that are available.

Under the eResources page there are also links via the State Library of NSW to further information. https://grenfellpubliclibrary.org.au/e-resources/ These are great for the high school students participating in Legal Studies from Year 9 to 12.
