The Law Library has a range of materials and resources to support law students taking summer courses, completing summer work placements, or for recent graduates studying for the bar exam. We continue to be open during the summer although our hours vary, so check our current operating hours on our website before visiting. Librarians are available to offer reference and research support in the library, over the phone, or by email. Find contact information on the intranet.
If you are taking courses online this summer, consider taking a look at our guide to Online Law School Classes for tips on time management, good study habits, and resources that support success in online classes.
