After extensive renovations which began in July 2000, the library celebrated its official opening by the Honourable the Chief Justice Yong Pung How on 27 February Following the Government's announcement to reallocate Bukit Timah Campus to NUS on 28 May 2005, the Law Library made its historic return to its first home in August
