Foreign Law Reports

The room is laid out in a conference style with a large screen PC available to use for project work. Although a collaborative study space, we do ask you to be mindful of those around you.

You will also see Law Reports in this room from Australian Law Reports to the Dominion Law Reports (and others).

This room still has some of the original features - look up at the ceiling!

The Law Library opened in the Law School on Windsor Terrace in 1977. It has remained here ever since, in the basement of the Law School. The Law School is four houses knocked through into one, so the Law Library has quite an unusual layout and we make the most of the space that we have.

While we are part of the Law School community, we are part of the wider Library service. As such, the Law Library is open to staff and students across campus; Law students can also use the Philip Robinson, Marjorie Robinson and Walton libraries. The Law Library also has visitors from legal professionals, alumni, researchers and members of the public. Being open to those with an interest in legal resources, whose "needs are beyond the resources of their own libraries", dates back to when we first opened, as you can read in the first Law Library Annual Report of 1977/78, below.
