C J Koh Law Library obtained approval for its extension from the relevant authorities including URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority) and PMB (Preservation of Monuments Board) in 2010. Construction started on 6th June 2011 and obtained its TOP on 28 November 2011. The extension converts the 2 courtyards on the left and right of the Library into 2 rooms. The rooms have glass curtain walls and serve as breakout areas.
The two rooms have been named after the majestic Angsana tree that stands in one corner of the Lower Quadrangle where the Library is situated. It is the tree that is fondly remembered by many graduates and is eternalised in a photograph of the pioneer batch of law graduates taken in 1961.
Angsana 1 has a seating capacity of 58 excluding the built-in benches along the glass walls. It serves as a multi-purpose area to be used for study, for presentations, trainings, group discussions. It is furnished and equipped with modular tables, roller blinds, a ceiling mounted projector and a 100 power points. Angsana 2 has 20 chairs excluding the benches around the wall. This room is equipped with 60 power points.
