Law Library

Interlibrary Loan Services

Interlibrary loan is a cooperative arrangement with other libraries that enables us to make available to you items not in the Law Library collection. Once a request for material is received, a search is conducted to find the nearest participating library with the item.

Interlibrary loan privileges are extended to current students, faculty, and staff.

History of the Law Library

Franklin Pierce Law Center, New Hampshire's first law school, was founded in 1973. The school began in the inauspicious surroundings of a building in East Concord, which had originally housed an animal husbandry farm. The library occupied the south end of that building with the major portion of the collection shelved in small rooms which had been converted from space that once served as stalls.

Attorney Member Services

The Library at the University of New Hampshire School of Law offers access to attorneys and practicing paralegals in exchange for an annual, modest fee.  Benefits of membership include borrowing privileges, document delivery service, and free scanning in addition to access to the law library. 

For more information contact Kathy Fletcher, attorney membership coordinator.
