Facilities and resources

The Law Library

Edinburgh Law School is proud to house one of Europe's largest Law Libraries within the Old College. The Law Library saw one of the biggest changes as part of the School's refurbishment project. It now occupies the entire northwest corner of Old College and boasts spectacular study and reading spaces such as the Senate Room. Students, staff and visitors can peruse the UK's largest collection of European legal documents in the new facilities, or browse the impressive collections held in the octagonal bookcases which mirror the historic Adam Lecture Theatre housed above the library.

Teaching and study spaces

The facilities have been upgraded to the highest specifications to cater for modern and flexible teaching requirements. Students also benefit from dedicated social and study spaces providing plenty of options for individual or group work.

Social space

The heart of the Law School features an open social space with a modern and bright cafe providing a space for all to meet and refresh. The grand central staircase and new lift connect all levels of the School ensuring anyone visiting the building can circulate with ease.
