Research Help: Speak with a Law Librarian

Visit us in person or schedule an appointment. Read on for basic research guidance.

Regular Reference

The Reference Area & Desk is located on the second floor of the library, near the main elevator, on the Lowerline side of the building. The telephone number for the Reference Desk is 861-5792. Reference Librarians can answer questions about the use of library materials, locations, and research strategies. Reference Librarians cannot answer legal questions; they cannot give legal advice.

Regular Reference Hours

Sunday: 10am-4pm

Monday-Thursday: 10am-8pm

Friday: 10am-4pm


Reference hours during the summer are based upon availability and projects that are occurring at the time.

The law library does not have copies of actions which were filed at the courthouse, nor does it have packets ready to file. If you have specific legal questions, you may find answers at

Request a Research Consultation

Loyola Law students may request an individual or group appointment with a reference librarian, covering any needs or questions about any type of legal research. Consultations are offered all year and may be helpful for academic papers or before summer employment. Examples of training sessions include HeinOnline, non-legal databases, advanced searching for cases, and researching a paper topic.
