Research

The Rains library offers a selection of online legal research sources covering many areas of law.  A good place to begin your research is with our online Research Guides, which give detailed information on specific subjects.  

You may also wish to search the Library catalog for both print and electronic material.  Alternately, you can search our list of legal research databases and the alphabetical list of electronic journals, which provides information about the coverage and availability of our journals in various databases.

In addition to the Rains Library subscriptions, authorized library users also have access to the LMU Hannon Library's subscriptions.  Please note, however, that LMU licensed databases are only accessible on campus, unless you are an LLS faculty or staff member with an LMU OneCard.

The reference librarians are always available to assist you with your research needs.  If you have any questions, please feel free to visit us at the Reference Desk on the first floor of Rains, call us at x1177 or send us an email.
