It offers an in-house collection of more than 600,000 volumes, plus access to a vast amount of information in digital format. The Library subscribes to LexisNexis, Westlaw, BNA, HeinOnline, LLMC and many other databases. It's staffed by academicians including five librarians who are also lawyers. In a six-story building, a spacious and carefully developed two-story library constitutes a foundation for a four-floor, fully integrated complex of classrooms and administrative offices.
