Welcome to our official Website 

Central Law Library was established at the initiative of the Supreme Court of Nepal and The Asia Foundation during the tenure of Chief Justice Biswanath Upadhyaya in 1993. The Asia Foundation and some other foreign embassies put tremendous effort for the establishment of the Library that may includes supply of estimated 3000 volumes of law books, infrastructure, library equipment's and consultancy service, among others. UN Information Center Kathmandu supported the library in early years.

Major objective of the library is to improve the legal research system in the country. The library is probably biggest law library in the country opened for public. Researchers, law student at the advance level and lawyers comprise largest number of its users. Fifty of them in average visit the library every day.

Currently we have approximately 15000 volumes of law books and other legal publications published in the country and abroad as well. We have good collection of Nepalese, Indian, British and American law books. Some embassies donated many of them. UNDP also supported the library providing valuable UN Treaty Series after the establishment of the library.
