LIRN is tasked with modernizing the delivery of legal information and library services by the Ontario county law library system in an efficient and cost-effective manner through the management and allocation of grant funding, ongoing assessment of the system and strategic development of appropriate service offerings.

LiRN was established by the Law Society of Ontario under the LSO’s By-Law 13 Part II, which requires that it create a corporation to establish and administer a system for the provision of law library services and programs by county law libraries.

LIRN is governed by an externally recruited, skills-based Board of Directors. Each Director provides specific knowledge and skills. Learn more about our Board here.

The Board currently has three standing committees: the Audit and Finance Committee, the Governance Committee, and the Network Policy Committee.
