International law: Books

Locating print copies in the Law Library

The current collection is shelved on Level 3, one floor above the entrance level. There are both stairs and a public lift to access. There are also study spaces (and a PCAS machine), but readers are free to take the books down to another floor within the library if they would prefer. Readers are not asked to return items to the shelves when finished with, but we would be grateful if they could be put on one of the book trolleys dotted around the library.
