  • Library


Our library houses a valuable collection of legal materials and provides access to numerous online services and internet sources which serve the legal research needs of the Students and Faculty. The reading section is divided in three parts i.e., General Reading section, Reference & Journal Section and Magazine section.

SKSIL continually expands and upgrades its library materials and resources to ensure students receive the best opportunities to supplement and build on their education. SKSIL selects newspapers and magazines of general interest as well as periodicals designed for a specialized audience to meet the needs of currently enrolled students. The library has been planned to keep in view the aims and objectives of the Law School and is being operated by a team of professionally qualified library staff guided by the Library committee. SKSIL maintains an E-library with an online and offline database. The library has an open access system to facilitate readers to have easy access to the library resources.
