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.
