This guide is intended to introduce you to the many ways that the Law Library can assist non-law patrons. While the primary mission of the Robert S. Marx Law Library is to support research, scholarship, and learning for faculty and students in the College of Law, the Law Library also makes many of its resources available to members of the University of Cincinnati community, and the local bench and bar.
Members of the general public, businesses, and organizations may access the Law Library for the purpose of conducting legal research. Individuals who wish to use the Law Library's collection of U.S. Federal Depository documents are also welcome.
The College of Law building is currently closed to non-law affiliated users. Non-law students, faculty, staff, and members of the public should contact a law librarian for assistance. For updates on other UC Libraries, please visit the UC Library Services Update page. Law Library circulation and reference are only available Monday - Friday 8:00am - 5:00pm. Hours may be different for holidays. You can check Library hours at 556-0163 or at https://law.uc.edu/education/library.html.
UC students, staff, and faculty should request Law Library circulating materials for Click & Collect through UCLID. Members of the public can request circulating Law Library materials through their public library.
Reference Librarians can facilitate a patron's use of the library, but cannot give legal advice. A Reference Librarian may not answer questions concerning the interpretation of the law, which law applies, or the application of law to any particular case. For questions, contact a law librarian for assistance. Also, don't forget the Library's Web page and many research guides.
The parking most convenient to the College of Law can be found at the CCM Parking Garage, off Jefferson via Corry Boulevard or the USquare (West) Garage on Calhoun. (map PDF)
