Library Support for Cambridge LLM students

There are two key elements of library provision that are relevant to students on the LLM programme – namely, the LLM book collection and the virtual learning environment, Moodle. Both sets of resources are managed by Lizz Edwards-Waller who is the LLM Collection Supervisor and is the key contact in the library for all LLM students. Lizz can be contacted by e-mail: or at the Enquiry Desk.

The LLM Book Collection

The LLM book collection is reserved for Cambridge LLM students and reflects the needs of the taught courses on the LLM. This collection is located in the first two bays on the first floor of the Squire Law Library and all the books can be identified by a red dot on the spine and arranged with the LLM class-mark.

Borrowing Privileges for LLM Students

LLM students can borrow 3 books at at time from the LLM collection, for 3 days at at time (we don't ask that books are returned at weekends, so books borrowed on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday can be returned the following Monday).  Students wishing to borrow books should take them to the Enquiry Desk with their University card.

Other Information about Loans

It should be noted that no student with overdue books can borrow from the library. Please note borrowing stops 30 minutes before library closing.

LLM students have borrowing rights at the main University Library where the borrowing entitlement is a maximum of 20 books for 8 weeks. It is also often possible to register to use other department and faculty libraries. 


The virtual learning environment, Moodle, allows for materials – handouts, reading lists and some journal articles and book chapters - to be made available for students to access.

Thesis options

Students who write a thesis have the main collections of the Squire available for use. These collections are for reference only purposes and should be used during the normal opening hours of the library. The Squire welcomes suggestions for books acquisitions. See the Suggest a Book option.
