In 2015 the UWA Law Library was awarded a $20,000 Law Society Public Purposes Trust grant to develop its international law collection. This collection is unique in Western Australia and supports a high level of research within universities, the legal profession and by Western Australians who have an interest in international legal issues.
UWA Professor Camilla Andersen contributed to the selection of texts and says:
"The new collection represents a much needed significant research resource for the growing body of scholars and practitioners who need to research issues which transcends borders. Important for comparative legal research, international commercial law and public law issues alike, it is one of the most extensive collections of books on international law in Western Australia. We are grateful to the Public Purposes Trust for enabling this collection to be established here, and will treasure it and share it."
This curated collection of leading texts will support those who require materials for in-depth research, beyond what is available in firm libraries. This collection will also support efforts to develop dispute resolution activities in Perth, and work in the field of international relations, human rights and social justice.
A selection of these highly regarded texts can be viewed in the foyer of the Law Library during orientation week and the first week of Semester 2.
