Facilities, Displays and Collections


The IP Library occupies one of three floors of the Law Library facility. Various type of study space includes tables, private carrels as well as soft seating. Seating capacity is one hundred fifty five (155). Most of our law school graduate students are international. Many use the IP Library extensively both for study and research.

The area is very well lit with both natural and overhead lighting. The book stacks are short, allowing a bright environment. The floor is designated as a quiet zone to facilitate research and study. The artwork has been donated by graduate students, thus providing a sense of familiarity and continuity with those from their home regions, which have come before them.
