About TTU Law Library

The Texas Tech University School of Law Library (Law Library) is the largest legal information center in the area covering western Texas, eastern New Mexico, and southern Oklahoma. The Law Library and its staff serve the educational, instructional, and research needs of the Texas Tech University School of Law.

The Law Library collection contains over 400,000 volumes in books, treatises, periodicals, microforms, government documents, and other materials in law, social sciences, and other subjects. Additionally, the Law Library provides faculty free access to multiple full-text legal databases, including LexisNexis, Westlaw, Bloomberg Law, and other national databases. As part of a comprehensive research university, the Law Library works in conjunction with the University Library to provide faculty easy access to its respective collections and databases.

The Law Library’s website offers information and updates about library hours, staff, services, programs, and access to electronic databases.
