Law Library News Archive

The Law Library News column appeared in The Crier, the weekly newspaper of the University of Washington School of Law. The column features news on Law Library policies, legal research tips, events, trivia contests & other items written by the Gallagher Law Library staff. See also the separate Book of the Week archive.

In October 2008, the Law Library News morphed into Gallagher Blogs. Excerpts and selected content from the blog will be highlighted in the Law Library News column of the Crier.

This archive contains Law Library News columns from January 1999 forward. Please note links to some websites mentioned in these columns may no longer be active.
