Law Library

The Law Library provides a wide range of legal resources for staff and students of the Australian National University. Our Law subject guides are a good starting point for locating these resources.


The law collection includes statutes and case law from every Australian jurisdiction and selected overseas jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. It also has a wide range of textbooks and journals and a law reform commission collection.

The major collection strengths of the Law Library are public and international law.

Additional Library services

Law Library staff provide assistance with using specific legal databases. Classes on finding legal materials and using databases are delivered to all first and second year law students as part of their courses.

Information Commons computers and printers are available in the Law Library. There are over 40 computers available for student use.

There are bookable group study rooms available. DVD players are available in 4 of the group study rooms and 1 portable DVD player is also available for loan.
