Murdoch University Law Library was opened in 1990. It was the natural outcome of the University's decision to establish a Law School. From its inception the Chancellor (Sir Ronald Wilson), the University Librarian (Mr V. Nadanasabapathy (Nada)), and the Foundation Professor of Law (Ralph Simmonds), were committed to two principles. First, that the Law Library would be an integral part of the University Library and not a separate library within the Law School. Second, that it would be a high quality research law library serving a quality research law school. This high standard was expressed by them in the typically understated aim of it becoming "a good law library."
