Yes, the library is happy for students to borrow law reports for the Law School mooting competition. There is a simple procedure in place for the borrowing and returning of these materials. See below:

  • Before the day of the moot, send an email listing all the authorities required to Lisa Hawksworth, the Law Librarian. A copy of this list will be printed and kept in the Staff Office on the first floor of the Abercromby Wing of the Sydney Jones Library (to the left of the main staircase).
  • Whoever is collecting the books needs to come into the library in good time before the moot and get the volumes from the shelves. Remember that you will need your University ID card to get into the library.
  • Bring the volumes to the Staff Office and a member of staff will check off the volumes against the printed list. If you need help locating some of the cases, ask in the Office. Someone will then accompany you to the exit desk as the law reports are for reference only and aren't usually borrowed.

The volumes will need to be returned to the Staff Office after the moot and before 5pm. If there is an evening moot, contact Lisa well in advance to enable alternative arrangements to be made.
