It also provides essential source of information to the officers of the Attorney General’s Chambers. The library staffs are responsible for liaising with the Government Printing Department for the process of publishing Government Gazettes.
Besides having an extensive collection of both legal and non-legal materials, documents, text books, reference materials, encyclopedias, Brunei Court Judgments and even legislation dating back to the British administration, it has also other legal information sources such as LawNet Singapore, LawNet Malaysia and LexisNexis databases.
The library is to cater specially for the officers of the Attorney General’s Chambers and therefore not open to members of the public. The public can make enquiries to the librarian regarding availability of any particular legislation.

Students are required to present a letter of confirmation from their respective educational institutions.
