The Old Law Library - Magdalen

The Old Law Library, or the adjacent Lecture Room A, used to be the venue for our termly marathons.

These rooms are almost mirror images of each other - they are not particularly large, and do not have an inbuilt television, or projector/sound system; however, you are allowed to eat and drink in them, crucially for a session as long as the marathon. On the occasion of the marathon, members of the society will move a projector or television into the room.

The Old Law Library is inside the main walls of Magdalen College, in St. Swithun's Quad, as indicated on the map shown below, with directions.

Enter the College through the main lodge on the High Street, and pass through the first quad to the far left corner. Go through the archway under St. Swithun's Tower, past the 'Members Only' sign, and the rooms are on the left: the Old Law Library is in the second staircase on the left, with its windows just to the left of the door - knock on these for access; Lecture Room A is in the first staircase on the left - knock on the windows just to the right of the door.
