The University of Iowa Law Library is among the three largest law school libraries in the United States. As of June 30, 2014, the Law Library had nearly 1.2 million hardcopy, microform, and electronic titles, and nearly 1.4 million hardcopy volumes and microform volume equivalents.

The Law Library’s holdings on the law of the United States and all of its states and territories, Great Britain, and the present and former members of the British Commonwealth are exceptionally strong, as is its collection of EU, UN, and WTO materials. It also has one of the most comprehensive collections in the U.S. of international and comparative law materials, and excellent collections from many non-English-speaking countries, including Argentina, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Mexico, and Russia. The Rare Books Collection includes the Hammond Collection of 1,200 English and Civil law materials and the Leist Collection of 3,000 volumes of German, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Canon law. The Law Library also has strength in Islamic and Jewish law.
