A group of 2 or more law students may reserve a room for no more than 2 hours each day no more than 2 weeks in advance. Study rooms L305A, L305B, L302A, L312, L313, and L314 may be reserved at the Circulation Desk. During exams, the study rooms may be unavailable as they are used for special accommodated exams. To reserve L306 between the hours of 7:30am to 6:00 pm you must complete a Room Reservation form and submit it to either Mary Andrews in the Dean's office or Shirley Oglesby in the Research Center (L207). Forms are available in both offices. Forms need to be submitted at least forty-eight (48) hours in advance of your event.
Carrels are available only to students working on student-edited law journals. To sign up for a carrel, student editors must check with the Circulation Desk for a carrel number assignment. All materials in carrels must be checked out to the carrel at the Circulation Desk and must contain a checkout slip.
All students, beginning with their first semester of law school, are given passwords to Lexis and WestLaw at no cost. Transfer students will receive passwords during the transfer student orientation. If you misplace or forget your passwords, contact the companies' customer support for assistance:
