Law Librarians

Employment Prospects


Only a small percentage of the librarians employed in the United States specialize in law librarianship. Law librarians work in college and university law libraries, libraries of law firms, the law departments of business corporations or other organizations, libraries of nonprofit legal aid and other organizations, and for the government (in prisons and in state, county, and city legal departments or courts). Law librarians also work for vendors of legal information resources as sales or training staff or liaisons that work with law librarians.
