BYU Hunter Law Library ranked 25th in the country

  • BYU in the top 25 out of the nearly 200 law libraries ranked

The National Jurist, a magazine that reaches an estimated 100,000 law students, ranked BYU’s Hunter Law Library 25th among 198 law libraries nationwide. The ranking was determined based upon a variety factors: comfort, accessibility, convenience and most importantly in this increasingly digital age, availability of the latest technological tools.
Second-year BYU law student, James Dunkelberger, commented that the BYU library not only excels in providing up-to-date technology but also an atmosphere conducive to networking and peer-to-peer learning.

“It's like a home base,” Dunkelberger said. “You can network with the people you need to. Everything you need is at your fingertips. The school has provided a place where we feel comfortable and has the space and the technology to facilitate learning.”

In 2004, BYU’s law school launched a project to upgrade the facilities. The upgrade doubled the size of the law library’s space. The entire building is equipped with wireless connectivity and students are assigned their own study carrel. BYU currently has the highest ratio of seats to students in the nation.

“The best thing about the law library is the facility itself,” Dunkelberger said. “It’s space me and my study buddies can use.”
