In a recent survey of law libraries at 183 ABA-accredited law schools, The National Jurist ranked the Colorado Law Library 35th best in the country.

In ranking the law school libraries, the magazine used a mix of categories that assessed "the number of materials available, the facility itself and the staff resources offered." Specific categories included "number of volumes, titles and serial subscriptions, ratio of library study capacity and professional librarians to student enrollment and number of hours per week open." Editors at the magazine tallied scores in each category and then compiled those scores into one total composite score for each academic law library. After all the counting was done, the Colorado Law Library earned a total composite score of 7.15, making it 35th best in the nation.
