A Guided Visit to the New Law Library, Old College

Time: 14:00 (Friends who have signed up to the tour should gather at the entrance to the Law Library, Old College, South Bridge by 13:45).

After several years of development, begun in 2014, the Law Library reopened in a new location in January this year. The new Law Library features the spectacular Senate Room with double height flooring, a study mezzanine level, quiet study space and computer desks. Since it re-opened the Law Library has been buzzing with students.

The Library holds the bulk of the University’s law collections, specialising in Scots, UK, international and Commonwealth law. It is also a designated European Documentation Centre.

The visit will be led by Liz Stevenson, Academic Support Librarian, Law Library.

After the visit Friends will have an opportunity for chat over refreshments in the co-located Old College café, which was also part of Old College refurbishment.

All members of the Friends are welcome.  Please sign up by contacting Alason Roberts ( or by post to Edinburgh University Library; George Square; Edinburgh EH8 9LJ) by June 4th to attend.
