Welcome to the Law Library

The primary mission of the library is to serve the educational and research needs of the faculty and students of the School of Law and the School of Criminal Justice. The library also supports the legal research needs of the Rutgers University community.  We are the most comprehensive public law library in New Jersey.  The Center for Law and Justice Library provides the students and faculty of the School of Law with access to major full-text legal databases including Westlaw, LexisNexis, HeinOnline, Bloomberg BNA, and the Making of Modern Law. Those databases include not only the current statutes and regulations and complete case law of the federal government and all the states, but also extensive collections of scholarly commentary, practitioners' treatises, historical legal material, and material on foreign law.
