Eckstein Law Library Guide for Marquette Law Students: Welcome

The Eckstein Law Library is operating remotely at this time

We encourage our students who have questions about resources and services "while remote" to consult a newly-added guide just for Marquette law students:  

Law Library Resources for Students Working Remotely

For other patrons: Due to Covid-19 and the stay-at-home order in Wisconsin, Eckstein Hall is closed for now.  The law library continues some reference and circulation services, to the extent it is possible to deliver these services remotely. For more information, please see Access to the Eckstein Library

Best wishes to all from the Eckstein Law Librarians 

Welcome to the Eckstein Law Library!

The Eckstein Law Library provides a variety of services, including individual research consultations, to meet the information needs of the students and faculty of the law school. Our goal is that you will find the law library a welcoming place with a staff ready to assist with your research and study. 

This guide has information about using law library services that you will need as a student at Marquette Law. It also defines some terms you will encounter in law school, both in and out of the library. Explore all the tabs that run along the top of this guide.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions you may have.  We are here to help.


Your home away from home
