The Law Library

An integral part of the teaching and research programs of the law school, the law library houses a collection of well over 400,000 volumes in hard copy, microform, cassettes, and other non-book media. Library holdings emphasize Anglo-American and international law materials, with collections for comparative law and some foreign jurisdictions.

Abundant computer stations, laptop connections, and printers allow students to consult university-wide online catalogs, take notes, and do web-based and CD-ROM research. LEXIS and WESTLAW access enables students and faculty members to do computerized research in federal, state, English, French, Commonwealth, and European community law. Users may also access a variety of databases, including the New York Times Information Bank.

The library balances the demonstrated needs of law faculty, law students, the university community, the bench and bar, and the public in general, making it a particularly extensive and varied collection. Holdings include virtually complete federal statutory and case materials; attorney general reports and opinions; federal, regional, and state digests; all published state encyclopedias; bar association reports and proceedings; and encyclopedias, annotated cases, and citators. Extensive collections of legal periodicals, treatises and textbooks, specialized law report sets, multivolume practice sets, and jury instructions complement the primary holdings. The library also subscribes to many looseleaf services, including those that support research in international and foreign law.

The Law Library is a full depository of the United Nations, both for regular documentation and for U.N. documents. Additionally, it includes a 20,000-volume Commonwealth collection, is one of the early U.S. government publications depositories, and is a depository for or subscribes to documents of organizations and legal bodies ranging from the American Bar Association to the European Commission of Human Rights. The research collections of several university, county, and state libraries—including the IUPUI University Library and the Indiana State Library—are also readily accessible to students and faculty.
