The Law Library serves as the information hub of the College of Law, providing a host of primary and secondary materials to support the research needs of law faculty and students. Over 40 major research databases and wireless capability throughout the building allow students to quickly access a large collection of electronic resources with the most up-to-date legal information. The Law Library houses a print collection of more than 250,000 volumes of Anglo-American, international, and foreign law materials, with in-depth collections to support the Law School’s signature areas of emphasis in Business Law and Entrepreneurship, Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution, Native Law, Natural Resources and Environmental Law, and our clinical programs. Our highly trained library staff is available to assist with your research needs.
Student carrels are located on the ground and second floors of the Law Library providing a comfortable environment for study and research. Group-study rooms are located on the second floor for collaborative learning. The Sister’s Brew coffee shop, located on the ground floor, also provides a relaxing space for discussion and refreshments.
As the result of an innovative collaboration with the Idaho Supreme Court, in 2011 the College of Law assumed management of the Idaho State Law Library. Located in the Idaho Water Center in Boise, the State Law Library currently houses a 30,000 volume collection of print and electronic resources to support the research needs of Idaho attorneys and judges, the general public, and the UI Boise Law Program.
