The Law library collection occupies the whole of the second floor of the Central Library. It is one of the major Law collections in Sri Lanka and serves the research and teaching needs of the faculty and students. Textbooks, Law journals, Law reports, Sri Lankan acts, Law dictionaries and Encyclopaedias are included in the collection. All the library materials in this collection are treated as reference materials and only law students are allowed to borrow textbooks for overnight and weekend reading. The Nijoff collection of the Law Collection is a special collection of Dutch legal writings dating from about 1750, purchased for the Law Faculty by Sir Ivor Jennings in 1946.
