This study aims to examine the determinants of academic law library use, collection, and services among the law faculty members in Pakistan. A survey was designed and data was collected through a structured questionnaire from the target population in order to achieve objectives of the study. The findings reveal that the majority of faculty members used circulation service in their respective institutional libraries and most of them consulted textbooks, general books and reference collection in their various academic and research related activities. The findings of this would be helpful for the policy makers and administration of the legal academic institutes to fulfill the demands of the user community in Pakistan.
