Law student facilities
In addition to the dedicated Law library within the main University library (now with 24 hour opening), supported by a specialist Law Librarian, the School of Law has worked hard in recent years with the University and our alumni groups to develop student learning resources and facilities within the School.
The School of Law invests in a Student Social Space.
The School of Law has recently further upgraded its facilities with the development of a Student Social and Learning Space. This modern, comfortable room is located in the heart of the 2 floor School of Law, just along from the main undergraduate office. The area has flexible seating arrangements, refreshment facilities and is fully supported by wifi. Students use the room for groups to meet up between classes to work on tutorial preparation and discussion, for student reps (StARs) to host regular 'drop-in' slots or simply to catch up with friends over coffee.
Postgraduate Taught students have access to a dedicated, recently re-refurbished room on the second floor of the School. This is equipped with networked pcs, an adjustable workstation and a meeting table. It’s an ideal space for postgraduate students to work in the School between classes, either as an individual or within groups.
Students are able to continue their discussions, or simply chat between classes in the new social space created on the second floor. Furthermore, there is now wi-fi coverage available to students throughout the School.
Library Space within the School and social area
Recent copies of core texts together with a meeting table for discussions are available for Law students on the second floor of the School. Students are also able to continue their discussions, or simply chat between classes in the new social space created on the second floor. Furthermore, there is now wi-fi coverage available to students throughout the School.
Law Library in the Main Library
There is an extensive Law Library situated on the ground floor of the Main Library. It stocks a range of law journals, professional resources, case reports, statutes, text books and research monographs. It is a silent study area.
Some of the earlier law documentation is only available on microfilm. There is a microfilm reader I the Law Library; ask at the Library iNFO-Point for help on using this equipment.
In addition, students have access to a full-range of electronic resources.
This is a high-quality multi-use learning environment designed around a moot court to enhance students’ development of a wide range of broadly applicable skills and to provide a site for further interactions between students and the legal profession, in particular our alumni. The Moot Court was officially opened in March 2013 by Keele Law Graduate, Fiona Woolf CBE.
