This is the oldest law library in Alabama, and the second oldest library in the state, dating from 1828 when it was located in the capitol in Tuscaloosa. It contains all appellate cases in the United States (in books); all the laws passed by legislatures of the 50 states and the District of Columbia; Acts of Congress; the United States Code; and federal agency regulations. An excellent collection of legal treatises is available, including scholarly works, works for the legal practitioner, and works for the lay person.
The law library subscribes to more than 900 legal journals and law reviews, making this one of the finest collections of legal periodicals in the state. Computers are available for library research, both on CD-ROM and online, and to use for word processing for preparing briefs and legal memoranda.
The Library is open to the public during regular business hours Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
