About the Jerome Hall Law Library

The Indiana University Law Library is among the finest academic law libraries in the country.

Accessed from the first floor of the Law School, it houses a first-rate collection in Anglo-American law as well as substantial holdings in international and foreign law.

Facilities Use

The Library is available for use by faculty and law students. It is also available to students from other units of Indiana University and any member of the public with a need to use the collection. However, in consideration of those with a need to use the collection, the Law Library is not available to non-law students and others as a place for general study.

Have a question or suggestion?

Reference questions can be asked through the online Ask a Librarian form. Questions received electronically are reviewed Monday through Friday, and every attempt will be made to respond within 24 to 48 hours. If you need more rapid assistance, please call the reference desk at (812) 855-2938, or come to the Law Library in person. The law librarians are not permitted to give legal advice, and many questions that require extensive research are not within the scope of this service. However, the librarians will be happy to direct you to materials that may help you locate needed information.

Suggestions can be made using the online Make a Suggestion form or by using the suggestion box located on the circulation desk. Concerns and ideas about the Law Library may be submitted here. All signed suggestions will be answered. Selected suggestions may appear in the Law Library's blog. [Note: blog temporarily unavailable]
