About the Library

As the hub for research, scholarship and late-night studying for students, faculty and the legal community alike, the Pacific McGeorge Legal Studies Center may just be the heart of the campus. In 1992, the library was named to commemorate the singular achievements of Gordon D. Schaber, Dean of the Law School from 1957-1991. Through Dean Schaber's innovative leadership, Pacific McGeorge grew into a unique living and learning environment of national stature with full accreditation by the ABA, AALS and the Order of the Coif.

With more than 500,000 volumes, the law library is your one-stop, comprehensive, fully automated legal research facility blending traditional and new media. From print, microform, and audiovisual, our expert librarians and staff ensure students and faculty locate the information they need and also consistently conduct legal research workshops to train students about how to use library resources.

As a law student, you'll be spending some quality time researching and studying in the library's variety of study spaces to suit any preference - including quiet study spaces, small group discussion areas and several private study rooms for groups of three to six students. In addition, the Computer Lab offers 28 student workstations for computer-assisted research and instruction, as well as email, word processing, presentation software, scanning, laser printing, and more. Or, you can go wireless on your laptop throughout the library.
