Contemplation Room and Meditation Sessions

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.  In addition, guided meditation sessions are held each Tuesday from 12:30-1:00 during the common lunch period.  Law Library Meditation Room photo

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 Alan Dershowitz's book, Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law?  Take a look at the Popular Reading Collection on the Law Library's 2nd floor.

Some Relaxation Tips

Don't forget 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.
  • Visit with a therapy dog!  The Law Library arranges for a local group to visit with therapy dogs during reading period.  Watch for an e-mail from the Law Library staff with times to meet our furry visitors.
