About the Library

The FIU Law Library is a research center designed to support the curriculum, teaching and scholarly work of the College of Law faculty, students and staff.  The core print collection is comprised of U.S. federal and state legal materials, publications related to foreign and international law, and a rapidly growing collection of Latin American legal materials. The Library’s resources also include a wide variety of specialized legal databases, including access to thousands of e-books and digitized legal treatises.

The Library offers FIU Law students study rooms, study carrels, computer workstations, a computer lab, and wireless Internet access. All Library users have access to the Library’s electronic resources, including the web-based library catalog, subscription databases, and selected Web resources.

Reference librarians are available to help library users identify resources that are useful in the legal research process. However, librarians may not give legal advice, perform legal research for others, interpret the meaning of legal materials, nor suggest what legal principles might apply in any given situation or set of facts.

Use of the Law Library is reserved for members of the College of Law community and persons using Law Library resources to conduct legal research. During Reading and Exam periods, access to the third floor of the Law Library is restricted to FIU Law students, faculty and staff.
