One of the nation’s largest law libraries, the Albert E. Jenner, Jr. Library offers students, faculty, and members of the community access to first-rate legal academic resources.


All our reference librarians are experts in legal research, with graduate degrees in law and in information science. And the library’s various seating areas provide comfortable space for research and scholarship, offering a variety of options for both quiet and group study.

Wireless access to the internet is available to the University of Illinois and College of Law community.

Law Library Databases and Reference Resources

The library’s electronic collections have been assembled to provide students with the opportunity to develop their research skills on the very tools they will find in law practice, from LexisNexis and Westlaw, to specialized databases in a variety of practice areas covering both U.S. and foreign law.
