William J. Jameson Law Library

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.

Reference Services

The Law Library staff is committed to providing the highest level of library services we can to all patrons. We provide reference services to all library patrons. Our hours are 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, and closed on Federal Holidays. Please contact us by email at law.library@umontana.edu or call us at (406)243-2699. Please note that we cannot conduct research for you, but we can direct you to appropriate sources of information and provide you with research advice.


The Scholarly Forum has merged with ScholarWorks. ScholarWorks is a service of the University of Montana Mansfield Library that centralizes, preserves, and provides access to the research, creative scholarship, and unique resources produced and curated by University of Montana faculty, students, and staff. ScholarWorks contains law faculty publications and the archives of the Montana Law Review and the Public Land and Resources Law Review.

Faculty and Student Blogs, Wikis, and Websites

We have compiled a diverse collection of blogs, wikis, and websites created and managed by faculty, staff and students in the Blewett School of Law. Please email us for more information if you think yours should be added to the list.
