Location

The library is located on the 8th floor of the Government Center in uptown Columbus, Georgia. The work and reading areas with carrels are situated next to windows allowing for natural reading light. Because the Law Library is housed within the confines of the Government Center, it is necessary to observe proper decorum, both in attire and conduct. There is a security system through which one must pass upon entering the Government Center.
