Established in 1911, the Jameson Law Library’s facilities, collection and services are available to students, faculty and staff of the Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana, members of the Montana Bar and the general public who require access to legal materials. We support excellence in legal research, teaching, scholarship and practice in Montana.
