For the Public
The Hastings & Prince Edward Law Association (H&PELA) is the local association for lawyers. It is one of 48 in Ontario, dedicated to ensuring that small-town lawyers have a voice at the provincial level. It is a volunteer association with no set hours. Each lawyer pays a fee to be a member. The fee entitles the lawyer to access the Law Library and all other Association resources.
If you have any questions about the local legal community, H&PELA is available to help you find the answer.
The Operation of the Court system at all levels and for all matters has been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The information and situation is subject to constant change.
The Library will be unstaffed from Thursday, December 22, 2022 until Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
