Hours & Access

The Law Library’s primary mission is to support the teaching and research activities of the University of Missouri School of Law. The collection is also available to the University community, attorneys, and other persons who have a need for legal materials. Non-law students are welcome to use the Law Library for legal research during regular business hours but not for general study due to space constraints, including availability and choice of seating for law students.
