Law Library

The George R. Farmer Jr. Law Library supports the teaching and research needs of the College of Law. The Library also proudly serves the West Virginia bench, practicing bar, and the general public at large.

The Law Library’s highest priority is to provide information resources and support for our faculty, staff, and users while safeguarding the health, well-being, and academic success of all our faculty, staff, students, and users.  Accordingly, as of March 19, at 5:00 PM, access to our physical materials and location is limited to essential library employees until further notice.

While physical access to the law library is restricted, the Law Library remains open.  The Law Library staff is available and continuing to work for you remotely to fulfill your information needs.
