About the Law Library

The Law Library’s mission

is to support and enhance the research and educational endeavors of the New England Law | Boston faculty, students, staff, and alumni.  The law library provides an excellent accessible collection for library users.  The library’s collection contains all standard legal research and reference materials, most of which are on open shelving for easy access.  Documents are available in printed form, electronically, and on microform.

The library is an essential and integral component in the educational life of the school; it supports the school’s curriculum and fosters an atmosphere that is conducive to research and learning.  The library’s knowledgeable and service-oriented staff provides instruction and assistance in both on-line and traditional methods of research.
