Welcome to all of our new 1Ls taking Criminal Law this summer! We’re so excited to have you here and look forward to seeing you in the library. Librarians are available to help you with your research needs and circulation staff is here until midnight daily.
The library has many different study aids for you to borrow, but wouldn’t it be nice to have your very own copy of a Crim Law Q&A? Follow @sulawlib on Twitter for your chance to take this very popular title home for keeps!
* Giveaway is limited to current Seattle University Criminal Law Students. One winner will be randomly chosen on June 27, 2017.
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:

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