The Kathrine R. Everett Law Library houses a rich collection of law and law-related materials to support the research and teaching of the UNC Law School community, and the larger University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill community.

The print collection contains materials in the following categories: United States federal and state law collections; foreign and international collections; government publications; and special collections and rare books.
- Charlotte - Charlotte School of Law Library
Our library holds the largest, most comprehensive law collection in western North Carolina. The 100,000-volume collection includes all federal and state case law and statutes, as well as law-related journals, treatises, monographs, and DVDs. Several special collections, including North Carolina law, South Carolina law, and law school prep materials, are available in support of the school's practice-ready mission and to assist prospective students.
- Durham - Duke University School of Law Library
The Goodson Law Library, with more than 625,000 volumes, serves not only as a library for the law community but also the university and the local legal community. The library collection is a major research resource, featuring comprehensive coverage of United States primary legal materials: reported decisions of federal and state courts, current and retrospective collections of federal and state codes and session laws, and regulatory and administrative materials, all accessible electronically and in print. Our extensive and continuously-expanding collection of legal treatises covers all areas of law, as well as history, economics, government and other disciplines with strong intersections to law.
- Durham - North Carolina Central University School of Law (NCCU) Library
The Law Library's more than 350,000 volumes and volume equivalents are offered in print, electronic and microformat. Its collection of cases, statutes, journals, looseleaf services, treatises, electronic resources, legal videotapes, shared resources and cooperative agreements with other libraries provides the legal resources needed to meet the pedagogical, research and scholarship requirements of the Law School's students and faculty. The Library is a selective North Carolina and United States Government Depository, has a special collection in Civil Rights Law, and supports the J.D./M.L.S. and J.D./ M.B.A. dual degree programs. Additional collection strengths include intellectual property, small business administration, and environmental law.
- Greensboro - Elon University School of Law Library
The Law Library collection, in depth and breadth, compares favorably with more established ABA-approved law schools and is considerably larger than typical academic law libraries at their earliest stage of development. Specifically, the collection is particularly strong in Leadership titles, U.S. Supreme Court materials, State of North Carolina monographs and treatises, and other emerging fields of law such as Bioethics/Biotechnology and the Law of the Internet.
- Raleigh - Campbell University Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law Library
The law library houses over 191,500 volumes and volume-equivalents. Included in the collection are all materials necessary to support the basic legal education curriculum. Reported decisions of all federal and state appellate courts, federal and state legislation, and administrative rules and regulations are easily accessible. The Library subscribes to more than 2500 periodicals and over 250 looseleaf services. The Library maintains subscriptions to current legal periodicals printed in the English language and to many non-legal and law-related periodicals. The treatise collection currently contains over 47,652 titles and is constantly expanding. This collection is devoted to treatises on all phases of law and other disciplines relevant to legal research. Selected government documents and pamphlets also are available.
- Winston-Salem - Wake Forest University School of Law Library
Our school seeks to prepare our students for the practice of law in the United States. Some of our graduates will use their legal educations for important purposes other than law practice, but we recognize that each graduate may be admitted to the bar in any of the 50 states. We, therefore, have a responsibility to provide our students with a foundation of legal knowledge and skill upon which they can build lives of service within the legal profession. We must attempt to instill in every student a respect for the rule of law, a devotion to the ideal of public service, and a commitment to basic professional values: honesty, diligence, competence, intelligence, and civility.
