Reference and Research Services

The reference desk is staffed every day during a regular week by our lawyer-librarians, who all hold degrees in law and library science and each has his/her own specialties. 


The library's regular Reference Desk hours are:

  • Monday through Thursday: 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Friday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Saturday: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Sunday: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.


Reference librarians help patrons, especially UH Law Faculty and students, to locate information and provide assistance in legal research methodology. They are here to help students do well in law school and become better lawyers. They do not provide legal advice or interpret legal materials.


Patrons can call the library's Reference Desk at 713-743-2327.
