Guidelines for Using the Law Library

Provides information on access and using the law library for the Fall Semester 2020.

Entrance Requirements

Checking In at the Circulation Desk

In order to enter the library, patrons must be prepared to show the circulation desk attendants (1) a confirmation email from the law school's reservation system, or (2) proof of enrollment in a class taking place in the library Garden Level (classrooms 1B06 or 1B12).  Students attending class should allow for additional time when entering the law library as the entry process will be slower than usual.  

University faculty and staff, including journal members, are allowed to enter the library without a reservation, provided that they head immediately to their destination and do not sit in library common spaces.

Students that are unable to meet these requirements will be asked to leave the library.

All patrons must comply with university guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19.  Complete information and guidelines can be located on the COVID-19 Updates and Resources page. 

Please note that:

  • All patrons must wear a mask while in the library.
  • No food or drink are allowed in the library.

Please note that Group Study Rooms are limited to one student with the reservation plus one guest. The student with the reservation must be present with the guest during check in at the circulation desk.
