Law Library, Newcastle Law School

Newcastle University Library and the Law School has for many years offered reference only access free of charge to our Law Library in Windsor Terrace to local solicitors and barristers. Open Access to this facility is from 09:00-17:00 Monday to Friday, but security access control governs access from 17:00-20:00 Monday to Friday and 10:00-20:00 on Saturday and Sunday.

If any practitioner uses or would like to use this Library, still free of charge, for reference at the control access times set out above we will issue a "Smartcard" to allow admission to the Law Library. To get a Smartcard, and thus become a member of the library, you should complete an application form: visit and select the "Individual Membership" unless you are an alumni of the university.

You may also obtain a form from:

Philip Robinson Library
Jesmond Road West
Newcastle University
Newcastle upon Tyne

For any practitioner colleagues wishing to become borrowing members, individual membership is £50.00 for 1 year and allows you to borrow 8 general loan items. There is no charge for reference access.
