Law Library

Law Library is located in Kensington within the Law Building and offers access to a wide range of materials, both print and online in the field of law and legal studies. See Law Library collection range for more information. Locate our facilities on the building maps with the mobile directory for Main Library and Law Library.

We have reopened limited spaces on Ground Level and Level 1 Law Library for essential visits only. Students and staff need to book a study session or 'Quick visit' printing ticket in advance. If you no longer require your study session, let someone else use the study space and cancel your Eventbrite booking. To protect our community, practice physical distancing, use sanitiser, wash your hands and no hot food or meals while in the Library.
