The Sir Robert Stout Law Library is the law library of the University of Otago in the city of Dunedin in New Zealand. It is named in honour of Sir Robert Stout, the first lecturer in law at Otago (1873-1876). Following his time at Otago, Stout went on to serve as Attorney-General, Prime Minister, and Chief Justice of New Zealand.

The Law Library is currently located in the Richardson Building in Otago's main campus in Dunedin. It occupies the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh floors of the Richardson Building. In the 1970s the library moved to the Richardson Building from the adjacent historic building which now houses the university's Staff Club.

The Law Library currently houses over 80,000 volumes of legal material from New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States. It also subscribes to 70,000 electronic journals and databses.
