The Boston College Law Library has a dedicated Contemplation Room (Law Library Room 427) for quiet reflection where all are welcome to use and enjoy the space. 

Guided meditation sessions are currently held virtually.  The schedule is listed weekly in the Monday headlines email under the "Events" section.

Popular Reading Collection

Yes, we know you're doing tremendous amounts of reading for exams.  But wouldn't it be great to relax with a mystery or with Hamilton and the Law? Take a look at the Popular Reading Collection on the Law Library's 2nd floor.

Some Relaxation Tips

Don't forPhotograph of students with a therapy dogget to take a break, stretch, and relax - you'll be more energetic when you return to your studying routine!  Also don't forget to get plenty of sleep - it will help you stay sharp and healthy for exams!

Some suggestions:

  • Law Library's DVD collection - we have a collection of popular DVDs on the 2nd floor
  • Cards, anyone? CALI has created a Time Trial card game. Pick up a pack of these cards at the Information Desk to play with friends. Prefer a solo game? Try the online game version.
  • Therapy dog sessions! The Law Library organizes for Therapy Dog teams to visit the campus during the two day reading period.  Watch for an e-mail from the Law Library staff with times to meet our furry visitors.
