Legal Research Center

The Legal Research Center

The Legal Research Center is a state of the art library located on the 3rd floor in the law school. The collection reflects the curricular and research needs of the faculty and students with a particular emphasis on the areas of concentration: business and entrepreneurship, criminal law, health law and intellectual property. In addition to the numerous print resources, users have access to the thousands of electronic databases, books and journals that the LRC as well as the Drexel University Libraries subscribe to. This provides the researcher with access to legal and interdisciplinary materials.

Along with books and reserve materials, the LRC circulation desk has a number of useful items for checkout, such as phone and laptop chargers, HDMI and Ethernet cables, GoPro Camera, HD webcams, and more. For more information, see Services for Students.
