Welcome to the College of Law Research Center. Our primary mission is to train our students to produce highly sophisticated and cost-effective legal research. Florida State Law students have 24/7 access to the Research Center. Our students can also use virtual reference provided by expert research librarians.

Our Research Center offers students:

  • extensive legal research offerings throughout all three years of law school
  • specialized classes, long and short, that help students to develop into expert legal researchers

What our students say about us:

  • "Expertise and willingness to help! You rock!"
  • "Finding the sources I was looking for with a librarian was quick, easy, and outstanding!"
  • "I've used lots of libraries but never before received such amazing library service!"
