Need help locating a few resources for a cite check or paper? Reference librarians are on duty to assist students five days a week when the Law School is in session.
The hours of the Reference Desk, on the second floor of the Law Library, are:
|Monday-Thursday||10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.|
|Friday||10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.|
During the summer and between semesters, reference hours are Monday-Friday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Reference librarians can also be reached by telephone at (434) 924-7465 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Law Library can provide research guidance, but we cannot interpret the law or provide legal advice. We cannot, for example, find statutes applicable to a particular subject or a specific set of facts. This is an inquiry that requires you to exercise your own legal judgment. Persons needing assistance in analyzing a legal problem are advised to consult an attorney.
Email reference service is intended primarily for students, faculty, and staff of the University of Virginia. If you are not affiliated with UVA, we will reply to your inquiry only if it relates to the School of Law or to a resource unique to the Law Library.
Every successful in-depth research project begins with a solid research plan. Our research librarians are available to help students develop research plans and to guide students through successful use of the library's extensive collections. Students are welcome to schedule a consultation with a librarian at any point in their research process.
If you'd like to schedule an appointment with a specific librarian, their contact information is listed below.
