Our Mission

The University of Michigan Law Library is “maintained and administered as a part of the instruction and research operation of the Law School.” (Board of Regents Bylaw 12.02).

The Law Library’s purpose is to build collections, provide effective access to legal information in diverse formats and provide facilities and services to support the teaching, research and educational needs of Law School faculty and students. The Law Library’s collections, services and policies are primarily designed to benefit Law School faculty, students, staff and scholars in the Law School’s research scholar program. The Law Library also welcomes others who need to conduct legal research, including University of Michigan faculty, staff and students, as well as attorneys, researchers and the public.

Circulation Policy

The Law Library is a research library and the books in the collection must be available for immediate use. Therefore, materials do not circulate out of the library. However, most books in the Law Library may circulate to offices or carrels within the Legal Research Complex if properly charged to such offices or carrels. Most materials housed in the Reserve area on Sub-2 may be charged for 4-hour use within the Addition although they may not be charged to office or carrels.

Books bearing the call number or location REF COLL, LLF (looseleaf services), RESERVES or RR may not be charged to carrels or offices.


Law Library Collection

The Library's comprehensive collection covers all time periods and jurisdictions, and includes material in print, microform, and digital formats.
