A haven. A sanctuary. A retreat from the masses. A Lawbry welcomes law students into the world of study and legal research with the added bonus of discussion areas and databases. From study to leisure, there is no better measure of a Law School’s capacity to provide students with a comfortable learning environment than through their Law Library. So, whether you seek a textbook on Torts or some Commonwealth Law Reports; a Lawbry will have it all.
3rd place: Vincent Wight
