Housed in historic Flavelle House and Falconer Hall, the Faculty is located in the heart of the city on the University of Toronto’s downtown campus. The law school is self-contained with its own class and seminar rooms, law library, faculty and student association offices. (For directions, see How to Find Us and Law School Buildings: Internal Maps)

The Faculty of Law is conducting a major building project to expand its facilities, which will affect Flavelle House and the Bora Laskin Law Library. See the Building Campaign and New Building Project - Information for Students web pages for more information.

Falconer Hall, 84 Queen's ParkFalconer Hall

Falconer Hall was built in 1901 as a private home for millionaire and philanthropist Edward Rogers Wood.

The smaller of the two buildings, it contains the main reception, intimate seminar rooms and classrooms including an attractive solarium, faculty offices, and administrative offices (Student, Records, Admissions, Career Development, Financial Aid, and Advancement).

Flavelle House, 78 Queen's ParkFlavelle House

Constructed in 1902, Flavelle House contains the Rowell Room common room, faculty and staff offices and meeting rooms. Flavelle House is currently affected by construction related to the new building project and only parts of it are accessible.

It was once the private residence of Sir Joseph and Lady Flavelle and is designated an historic site by the Toronto Historical Board. The building retains much of its unique architectural interest and, through the generosity of several benefactors, parts of it have been restored to their former elegance.

Bora Laskin Law Library

Named after Bora Laskin, one of the founding faculty members of the law school and a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, the Bora Laskin Law Library is part of a modern extension of Flavelle House. It was opened in 1991 by former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau, who appointed Bora Laskin to the Supreme Court.  

The library contains more than 265,000 volumes and subscribes to more than 700 scholarly legal periodicals from around the world, plus leading law CD-ROMs and online systems such as Quicklaw, Westlaw and Lexis-Nexis.

Six full-time librarians are available in the library. The library is currently housed in temporary quarters due to the new building construction project.
