Law Student Guide to the Law Library

This guide provides an overview of the Law Library for law students.

Reference Services & Hours

Reference librarians can help you with formulating research strategies and using research tools. To consult with a reference librarian please contact one of us or call the circulation desk to set-up an appointment. The law librarians have also written guides that we post on the Law Library’s website. Additionally, we link to research guides that others have created. You can find all of our guides in the Law Library Research Guides & Tutorials. For interdisciplinary subjects, check one of the UC Library Subject Guides. Our educational goal is to teach you how to find the answers yourself!
