Silent Study Area

Black circle with white icon of face profile and finger shushingThis part of the Law Library is for silent study with individual study spaces.

The Law Library is an academic library where we ask you to study quietly and with respect and consideration to your peers. There are collaborative study spaces within the Law Library (Mooting Room and Foreign Law Reports) for group work and discussion. However, the silent study area is for silence and study!

This area also holds our International Law Room, European Law Room, a duplicate set of The Law Reports, some Statutory Instruments and Law Commissions Reports:

  • Books with the shelfmark of 341 can be found in the International Law Room.
  • Books with the shelfmark of 348 can be found in the European Law Room.
  • The duplicate set of The Law Reports can be found in the Law Reports corridor at the other end of the Law Library.
  • Statutory Instruments and Law Commissions Reports are tucked away to the left as you enter the Silent Study Area.
