Hours & Access for the Law School Community

The Law Library’s primary mission is to support the teaching and research activities of the University of Missouri School of Law. While we strive to meet the legal research needs of the surrounding community, the physical Law Library is closed to anyone who is not part of the Law School community. Reference librarians and assistants are available to help remotely. Connect with a librarian by chat, email, or Zoom. The Mizzou Law Library has a Remote Access Guide to help you teach and learn remotely.
