Beasley Law Library

A modern research area and vibrant study space for Law School students

The Beasley Law Library is a bright and modern space providing a comfortable and functional learning environment for student research, study or collaboration.

Areas have been equipped to function with technological devices, and the library contains an extensive database with an impressive collection of law journals and articles.

Named after the first Chair of Law at UWA, Professor Frank Beasley, the library opened in 1967. In 2017 the building was refurbished as part of the Law School’s 90th anniversary celebrations  

The library was designed by architect Gus Ferguson, who received a Royal Australian Institute of Architects Bronze Medal for the building in 1969 and, subsequently, an Australian Institute of Architects 25 Year Award for Enduring Architecture in 2010.

It is open from 8am to 10pm, Monday to Thursday and from 9am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday. Students have 24-hour access to the Level 1 Training Room/Computer Lab with their student card.
