Visit the Reference Desk

Have a legal research question? Not sure where to start? Trouble with a mysterious citation? Come on over to the Law Library Reference Desk. 

Staffed by an experienced and friendly team of law librarians, the Reference Desk is your first stop for any legal research question.


Though the librarians welcome your company, you can also reach the reference desk by phone during Reference Hours at (503) 768-6688.

Leave a message if the reference desk is closed or we are away from the phone. We will try to respond within 24 hours, and usually much sooner.


Feel free to send us an email question. Just address it to

Be sure to let us know if you are a member of the LC Law School community.
