Mission Statement

The Kresge Law Library supports foundational research and provides direction for more in-depth research on legal issues of interest to our faculty and students by maintaining comprehensive core collections in a variety of formats on each area of law covered by our curriculum or that is the subject of faculty research. The library provides access to high-quality library services designed to meet the curriculum, research, professional, intellectual, creative, and personal needs of the UDM community, and provides Detroit lawyers and residents with access to basic legal information.


The library staff will provide students and faculty with guidance and assistance in both locating information and planning research strategies.
