This guide covers the library facilities and services available to incoming and current law students through the Law Library and its faculty/staff.

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.
