Q. Is the Law Library open to the public?
The BC Law Library’s primary mission is to serve the current students, faculty and staff of Boston College Law School. BC Law Library offers research assistance and access to the Library’s collections to the students, faculty, staff and alumni of BC Law. Members of the BC community who require access to legal materials and assistance with legal research are welcome to use the Law Library collection.
Although BC Law Library is not a public institution, it is a federal documents depository library. Individuals interested in using the Law Library’s federal depository documents are entitled to use this segment of the collection. Access to these federal documents is available during weekday business hours. Researchers should search the Law Library’s catalog prior to visiting to determine if the desired federal document is owned by the Law Library.
