Memorial Day Hours

The Library will be open 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Monday, May 31.

Longer Hours for Finals

The Library will be open extended hours during final exams. From June 1-10, we will be open until 11:00 each night.

Taking Exams in the Library

If you'd like to take your exams in the Library, you are welcome to use a carrel, a study table, or any unoccupied study room (remember, though, that groups of law students wanting the room for study have priority). However, there is no guarantee of absolute quiet. Patrons will still be using library resources, asking questions of librarians, etc. The library staff must continue to reshelve books, which involves the sometimes noisy book lift on the east end of the stacks and perhaps a squeaky book truck. If such distractions will affect your concentration, please choose another location to take your exam.

Library Open for Commencement Reception

For some of you, law school is almost at an end. By Sunday, June 13,you may already be feeling a bit nostalgic and eager to reminisce. So that you can show off the library where you spent so much of the last three years of your life, the Gallagher Law Library will be open to you, your families and guests, for a reception following commencement. It will be held in the Reading Room, and tours of the Library for families of grads will be given.

Graduating Students

Be sure to return all library materials before graduation. The University may withhold the transcripts of those who have not cleared their library records.

Graduating third-year students may continue to use the Library with their student id's through summer quarter. After August 20, we will delete all graduates from the library database. Graduates are then invited to re-register for borrowing privileges as new members of the legal community.
