The Robert A. and Vivian Young Law Library collection contains more than a quarter of a million volumes, including cases, statutes, digests, law reviews, and treatises, from every American and many foreign jurisdictions.
The Young Law Library is a depository for federal and Arkansas state documents, and it is Arkansas’ only United Nations documents depository library. The Law Library is responsive to the changing needs of students and faculty of the School of Law and strives to collect materials to support their curriculum and research requirements. Our growing collection of agricultural law materials, developed with assistance from the National Agricultural Law Center, is an excellent example.
Students research legal problems using both traditional printed resources and electronic resources on the Internet. Our computer lab is available for faculty classes and student research. The School of Law provides wireless network access to all students, faculty, and staff. Reference librarians, reference assistants, and our computer services team are also available during library hours to answer any questions.
While primarily designed for the use of law school students and faculty, the Young Law Library also serves the research needs of the Arkansas bench and bar as well as the university community and the public. The Young Law Library provides an attractive and comfortable atmosphere for study and research, including an Arsaga’s Espresso Cafe, which serves drinks, pastries, and sandwiches.
In addition, the main campus library, Mullins Library, is located across from the Young Law Library and provides access to a variety of paper and electronic materials that support a wide variety of research.
