Collections

The law library's collections, including more than 425,000 volumes in hard copy and microforms, are arranged mostly on two levels of "open stacks," where library patrons can walk right up to shelves housing library items or browse nearby library material.

The library also has an active serial collection of approximately 3,000 titles. The library's participation in the New England Law Library Consortium (NELLCO) expands the breadth of our holdings by offering interlibrary loan with other law schools in the Northeast.

Since 1979, the Law Library has served as a selective United States government depository, which means that the library has a variety of government documents in hard copy or in microform.

While the law library is closed (May 12 through August 2014) in preparation for the move to the new Law Center in North Haven, library patrons may access government publications at other depository libraries in Connecticut. Read more
