MERITS OF HAVING A LAW LIBRARY

A Picture of Salma

Did you know the Newcastle University has 4 libraries? The Philip Robinson (which is the really big one), the Marjorie Robinson (the newest), the Walton Robinson (the one in the Medical School) and the Law Library which is in…the Law School.

As a law student myself, I definitely spend a lot of time taking advantage of the facilities provided by the Law Library. Only some of the benefits include:

  • Its own computer cluster complete with printers and photocopiers
  • Lots of spaces for private silent study, as well as several discussion rooms if you want to do some group work
  • More than sufficiently stocked with so many different books and journals concerning every aspect of the law and the availability of Library Search is so useful so you can find whichever book you’re looking for.

In fact, the Law Library is so well stocked that I have yet to even come across someone who hasn’t been able to find the book they need in there. And should you ever not find a book you’re looking for, the library staff are extremely helpful and approachable. They’ll be able to help you out in finding what you’re looking for or even ordering it in should it not be available.

Don’t get me wrong, I spend a whole lot of time in the Robinson library and have also paid a visit or two to the Marjorie but the Law Library really is indispensable for a law student. To be able to have all of those resources in the same building where you go to lectures and seminars is such a useful thing to have and I am so glad that it’s available to us at Newcastle University.
