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 at http://lawlibguides.seattleu.edu/newstudent.
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 Finding Study Aids Guide at: http://lawlibguides.seattleu.edu/studyaids.
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: http://www.law.seattleu.edu/library and click on the links under Study Rooms and Equipment Requests.
