College of Law

LaValley Law Library Staff

The primary mission of the Law Library is to support the research and education endeavors of the faculty and students of The University of Toledo College of Law. The Library pursues this mission by acquiring, organizing, disseminating, and facilitating the use of legal information in all formats and by providing high quality service and instructional programs - in a physical environment conducive to research and study. The Library staff believes that its own success is mirrored in the academic success of each student and faculty member.

Supplementing its primary mission, the Library serves as a legal information center for the other Colleges of the University, and for researchers in the local community, and beyond. The Library tries to help all in their research while concentrating most of its energy and resources on its primary clientele.
