If you have text books or books on the legal subjects that you no longer need, how about listing them for donation here, so that others can enjoy your book?

I am starting a virtual book shelf, devoted to books on legal subjects (or DVD’s and CD’s), right here at Litigation Help. This way, we can all help each other out by donating or exchanging books we no longer need.

I have created a “core” library of titles that you can borrow. See (A) CORE LIBRARY below. This is only available in the Greater Toronto Area. Pick up location will be at Brentwood Library (west Toronto, near Royal York subway station), or in that vicinity. (We can arrange for a time to meet.) As these are from my own collection, I would like to have them back when you are done with them, or until someone else wants to borrow them. As such, I would require you to show me your ID, and leave me with your phone number or email address.

I also have a selection of free books you can take to keep. We can again meet at Brentwood library for you to receive the books. See (B) Books to Take For Free below.


Please contact me at hh@litigation-help.com directly if you would like to donate, borrow or obtain these books.

No dealers please.
