On 18 June 1999, the Law Library was named as Tan Sri Professor Ahmad Ibrahim Law Library (Perpustakaan Undang-Undang Tan Sri Profesor Ahmad Ibrahim) in appreciation of his contributions to the Faculty of Law and the Law Library University of Malaya.
Since its inception in 1959, the Central Library began acquiring legal materials and these were incorporated into the general collection together with texts of the other disciplines. However, with the setting up of the Faculty of Law in 1972, which happens to be the first law school in the country, the legal resources were shifted to the newly erected Law Library situated adjacent to the Law School.
