Law Library

The Law Library provides a foundation for the College of Law's education and research mission. The Law Library facilitates the legal information needs of alumni, the Kentucky bar, and the public. To advance these goals, we offer services and maintain a collection that supports legal scholarship, instruction, and practice. 

In pursuit of these goals, the Library has built a collection in excess of 850,000 volumes representing 340,000 titles in a variety of print, microform, and electronic formats. Patrons may call upon the professional guidance of its seven librarians, many of whom hold both law and library degrees.
