One of the key features of a law school is its’ library. A good library engenders scholarship, learning, and furthers the life of the mind. To support this, the Library has a three-fold mission. The first is to support the research needs of the JSW Law community with access to quality texts and other materials in a variety of subjects. The second is to provide an unparalleled legal collection on the law of Bhutan.  The third, and possibly most valuable, is to provide access to materials in Dzongkha, the official language of Bhutan, so that students may further their own knowledge of this language.  

At this point in time, the Library maintains a physical collection of approximately 1500 volumes. The majority of these are legal works in the areas of international law, environmental law, cultural heritage law, and standard law curriculum texts.  The collection also includes books on the history of Bhutan and the legal history of Bhutan.  The Library subscribes to a number of legal databases such as HeinOnline, WestlawNext, University of Chicago Journals, and HINARI.
