Law Library (UMKC)

 

The Leon E. Bloch Law Library is located within the University of Missouri-Kansas City Law School. The Library's collection spans three floors of the school. It is specifically designed to facilitate the work of the legal scholar through making available all types of information resources.

The Leon E. Bloch Law Library is not only a place to study, but a laboratory for students to master legal research skills, both in traditional print and electronic media. It is also a forum for self-directed learning, a place students take control of their educational experience through researching selected paper topics and their own law review notes. The library contains holdings in major areas of legal scholarship and practice. It is home to rare, early seventeenth century editions of Sir Edward Coke's treatises and case reports. It also preserves the Charles D. Gould Jr. Collection, consisting of photographs and memorabilia from the Nuremburg trials. The collection focuses on trial advocacy, urban law, family law, small business entrepreneurship and tax law. The library's foreign law holdings are targeted for increase and access to historical materials have dramatically expanded. What is not held in print in the library, or in its many database services, is conveniently available through the library's online catalog request and delivery service. This service provides access to seventy Missouri libraries and about 18 million items. The service includes access to the holdings of the three other law school libraries in Missouri.
