The primary purpose of Regent University Law Library is to anticipate and support the legal research, scholarship, and curricular need of the faculty, students, and administration of the School of Law.
Through the liaison program, which pairs each member of the law faculty with a member of the law library faculty, the Law Library provides a wide variety of instructional and scholarship support services.
