The object of the UQLA textbook programme is to ensure that financially disadvantaged students have ready access to the key textbooks which are critical to their legal studies.
In consultation with the Law School, the UQLA will be seeking to identify the key textbooks which are required for each subject on the curriculum.
When new editions of these textbooks are published, the UQLA will be seeking to fund the acquisition of up to five copies of these texts for short-term use in the UQ Law Library.
The UQLA regards this programme as one of its most important initiatives, because of the key role which high-quality textbooks play in the study of the law.
It is an initiative which, because of its ambitious size, can only be fully implemented with the support of the publishers.
The UQLA wishes to particularly acknowledge the very generous support and encouragement of Thomson Reuters and LexisNexis, whose financial support has made this programme possible.
Copies of the following textbooks have been made available in the high use section of the Law Library as a part of the programme:
