About the Law Library

Library Books

Why do our campus tours always end in the library? If you’ve visited campus, you know.

The spacious and open Lucille Stewart Beeson Law Library is a grand facility, created for serious study, deliberation and great ideas.

At a time when other institutions struggle to keep students on campus or keep their resources in step with student needs, Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law is able to provide a library of significance, a place sought out by students seeking academic excellence, collegial comfort and a third place for thinking and study.
