Reference services are primarily for students, faculty, staff, alumni and other members of the University of Chicago community. For those not affiliated with the University of Chicago, reference assistance is limited to the collections and services unique to the University of Chicago.

During the academic year, reference librarians are available from 9:00 am to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 to 5:00 p.m. Fridays, and from noon until 4:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. You may contact the reference desk at (773) 702-9631.
The reference librarians are: Sheri Lewis, Associate Law Librarian for Public Services; Lyonette Louis-Jacques, Foreign and International Law Librarian; Bill Schwesig, Reference Librarian; Connie Fleischer, Reference/Government Documents Librarian; Margaret Schilt, Faculty Services Librarian; and Todd Ito, Reference Librarian.
In addition to general reference service, the reference staff conducts general and specialized tours of the library, presents lectures on legal research topics, provides instruction on LexisNexis, Westlaw, other legal resource databases and the Internet, and arranges interlibrary loans from other law schools.
