THE LAW LIBRARY

The Law Library; located in the Western Wing of the 2nd floor, provides information services to all students lecturers, and researchers studying law or related fields.

Growth of the Library

Between 2002 when the law faculty begun and 2013, several additional important collections were acquired and in 2014 the new Law Library was constructed with open stacks; and the overall library had 8000 volumes.

Current Status

The law library remains the largest in Uganda, and continues to reinvent its self to meet the needs of the law school. In 2016 (again) when the Faculty of Law was elevated to the School of Law, the library also streamlined to meet this strategic initiative and currently we hold 6819 volumes in closed access and 71514 volumes in the Law library. These include legislations from different countries and secondary sources of legislations prepared under specific subjects of law which emphasize legal theory, research, concepts and practices which expose you to the diverse areas of the law so that you can discover your path to career professional success.

In 2017, the library acquired HEINONLINE terminal and TRADELAW GUIDE from (WTO) with tools and innovations (and add LEXISNEXIS). Also journals and Law E-books can be accessed from EBSCO host among others.

Functions are being streamlined for greater efficiency that will enable the library to extend services to continue to meet new demands.

The library seeks to offer empirical research support, collect more interdisciplinary and international materials in support of Kampala International University Law School’s Programs of Study.

The Library’s collection is in Closed Access. The patron needs only valid library card to use any information material from that section. Users of this section can borrow the information materials for a period of three hours. However, the same material can be re-borrowed if no other person has asked for it to be reserved.
