Welcome to the Charles B. Sears Law Library

Named for the Honorable Charles Brown Sears, the Law Library occupies six floors in the center of the Law School. Our services and research collections are carefully tailored to meet the research instruction needs of the University at Buffalo School of Law's students. Our beautiful facility, often referred to as “the heart of the Law School,” provides a comfortable, modern setting that is very conducive to the study of law.

Our library’s fine collection of more than 600,000 volumes and microform equivalents plus a wide array of online resources in legal and cross-discliplinary subjects is augmented by convenient access to the university’s three-million-volume research collection. When research material is not available on campus, UB School of Law students are encouraged to use our extensive and efficient interlibrary loan network. The library’s instructional technology resources include a state-of-the-art computer classroom, thirty-three networked computer workstations offering a variety of software, numerous laptop connections, and extensive audiovisual curricular support.
