Library Support for Cambridge MCL Students

There are two key elements of library provision that are relevant to students on the Masters in Corporate Law  programme – namely, the dedicated book collections that support the MCL course and the virtual learning environment, known as Moodle. Both sets of resources are managed by Lizz Edwards-Waller who is the MCL & LLM Collections Supervisor and is the key contact in the library for all MCL students.  Lizz can be contacted by e-mail: or at the Enquiry Desk.

The MCL Book Collection

The MCL book collection is reserved for Cambridge MCL students and reflects the needs of the taught courses on the programme. This collection is small (about 150 volumes in total) and is located at the end of the first bay on the first floor of the Squire Law Library. All books can be identified by a green sticker on the spine and arranged with an MCL classmark.

Borrowing Privileges for MCL Students

MCL students can borrow 3 books at at time from the MCL or adjacent 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.

MCL 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. Students can access Moodle at:
