The Law Library is the third branch library within the structure of Sofia University Library. The collection of its holdings started in 1892 with the acquisition of literature in the field of law to the new Faculty of Law at Sofia University. It became a faculty library in 1948.. Part of its holdings was formed through donations. Main donors have been the embassies of France, USA and Germany in Sofia; the Institute of Business Law in Hamburg; Ciela, Sofi-R and Sibi publishing houses, as well as members of the Faculty of Law, who donated their personal libraries - Prof. Zhivko Stalev, Assoc. Prof. Rumen Cholov, Assistant Druzhelyub Dabev and others.

Today the library has a very rich stock of legal literature of over 85,000 library items in different languages. It provides free access to scientific periodicals, part of legal printed sources and electronic resources.

The Law Library is a base library of literature on human rights issues. Since 2001, within the library functions the European Documentation Center, which acquires major publications of the Office for Official Publications of the European Communities in Luxembourg. The collection includes: “Encyclopedia of European Community Law”, “Encyclopedia of European Union Law”, “Yearbook of the European Convention on Human Rights” and others. The library maintains regular contacts with the libraries of the European Court of Justice, the Embassy of the United States, the Information Center of the European Union in Sofia, the Information Center on the Council of Europe, Bulgarian Council of Ministers, the Ministry of Justice, the National Assembly and the Supreme Court of Cassation.
