About the Law Library

Ehrhorn Law Library at Liberty University School of Law is the nucleus of the law school. Its collection supports the law faculty and students in their studies and research and is an important new resource for the local legal community. The law library faculty and staff stand ready to assist in accessing information from the growing universe of legal material in print, electronic, and other media.

In addition to the core collection – consisting of federal and state codes, court decisions, and administrative decisions; Congressional records; international materials; and a large legal periodicals section – the law library is continually adding titles that amplify the curriculum and the mission of the School of Law. The classics of the Western Legal Tradition and the writings of the great legal thinkers, educators, and judges of the past and present are provided to undergird a principle philosophy of the law school: ad fontes (“back to the sources”).

Easily accessible from the classroom area and from the Faculty Suite, Ehrhorn Law Library provides an environment conducive to research, study, thinking, and writing. Its large and open design accommodates conference and study rooms, a computer lab, individual study carrels, and comfortable seating areas.

Since the “information age” has revolutionized the availability of data, legal researchers must consult a variety of formats. Along with its extensive microform archives, the law library provides access to law-related and general databases via the Internet through any web browser. These electronic databases are available throughout the law library via a wireless network. Electronic legal research is always available, whether in the computer lab, in a classroom, or at home through an Internet connection.
