Research Consultation Services for Students

Every successful in-depth research project begins with a solid research plan. Our research librarians are available to help students develop research plans and to guide students through successful use of the library's extensive collections. Students are welcome to schedule a consultation with a librarian at any point in their research process.

Services for the Public

Reference services are intended primarily for students, faculty, and staff of the University of Virginia. If you are not affiliated with UVA, we will reply to your inquiry only if it relates to the School of Law or to a resource unique to the Law Library.

The Law Library can provide research guidance, but we cannot interpret the law or provide legal advice. We cannot, for example, find statutes applicable to a particular subject or a specific set of facts. This is an inquiry that requires you to exercise your own legal judgment. Persons needing assistance in analyzing a legal problem are advised to consult an attorney.
