Kresge Law Library

The Kresge Law Library holds more than 420,000 print volumes of legal texts, along with digital access to millions of journal articles, cases and other documents through our numerous digital database subscriptions. But perhaps what the Law Library is most known for is its grand Reading Room, which awes with its two-story open archways and third floor wrap-around balcony. 

Filled with study carrels and large tables, the library serves as an academic hub for the Law School. During the weeks leading up to finals, you'll find a steady stream of scholars populating the tables and carrels. The law library faculty and staff are ready and more than willing to help you with legal research for your courses or other questions related to class work or writing.

The Kresge Law Library is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, though special exceptions are made during finals weeks at the end of each semester, when the library is reserved for law students only.
