The Supreme Court Library is open to all the Judges and Magistrates of Trinidad and Tobago, as well as all legal practitioners entitled to practice in the courts of Trinidad and Tobago. Researchers in the Law attached to universities are also facilitated. Limited access is given to law students attending the Hugh Wooding Law School. The Library also has co-operative links with other Law Libraries both at home and internationally.
Assistance by Library Staff
The Library Staff will provide reference assistance but will not explain or interpret any legal material.
Computer Use at the Libraries
There are a number of Public Workstations at the libraries of the Court Library Services Unit. These are to allow users to access the Unit’s Web Interface which includes: the online catalogue, lists of new materials received, access to e-documents such as practice directions, amendments to rules of court and new legislation as well as the library’s selection of useful websites.
Computer use is on a first come first served basis. The computers have been programmed to allow use in one hour segments. Use may be extended at the discretion of the Librarian.
