We support students, faculty, staff, and alumni in an environment designed to enable the USF School of Law community to pursue excellence in education, build a supportive, open learning community, and contribute to social justice as we strive to educate minds and hearts to change the world.
We select and organize legal information to help ensure that the law school community has access to relevant legal and interdisciplinary information. Our annual expenditure of over $1.5 million on library materials allows us to fully and adequately support the curricular and research needs of the USF Law community. Our eight full-time professional law librarians instruct students, faculty, and staff in practical legal research strategy. We strive to provide a supportive and flexible atmosphere that balances community and study.
The law library provides an attractive and comfortable research and study environment that is accessible 98 hours per week by the USF Law community. The building features wireless access, 428 study seats, group study rooms with audio-visual equipment, and a computer lab designed for legal research instruction.
