Welcome 1L Students!


We met many of the new students during the recent library 1L orientation, but if you were unable to attend, here is a summary of some of the most important things we covered:

1L students will receive passwords for TWEN at orientation. First week assignments are posted here.

Library Survival Guide

If you need information about law school in general, briefing a case, or outlining, consult our new student guide.

Study Aids

The library has a variety of study aids located in our reserve section including: Nutshells, Hornbooks, Examples and Explanations, Emanuel Law Outlines and Gilbert Law Summaries.  For specific titles see our guide on finding study aids.

Casebooks

The library maintains one copy of each required first year casebook in the Reserve area for two-hour check-out (no overnight checkouts).  The first year casebook collection is to be used for quick reference or limited photocopying and is not intended to be a substitute for purchasing casebooks.  The library does not purchase copies of required supplementary materials/handouts or upper division course materials.  

Study Rooms

Study rooms can be reserved for your study group.  It’s a two hour maximum per day per group.  For more information, visit the library website and click on Reserve a Study Room.

We look forward to seeing you in the library!
