  2. Visiting Students: Temporary library privileges are available for visitors. You must present a validated University of Hawai`i ID card and provide a hawaii.edu email address for notification of library-related matters. All borrower registrations are done at the Circulation Desk in the Law Library.
  3. Moot Court/ Law Review Members, Research Assistants: All members have the same borrowing privileges and loan periods as regular law students. In addition, they may borrow non-circulating materials with special permission from Library staff. Research assistants must have the Proxy Borrower Registration form (available at the Circulation Desk) completed and signed by his or her professor.

Faculty Borrowers

Faculty Registration Process

Permanent full-time Faculty/Lecturers in Law/Adjunct Faculty: All faculty members must register with the Law Library in order to borrow library materials. You must present a validated University of Hawai'i ID card and provide a hawaii.edu email address for notification of library-related matters. Use of hawaii.edu email address is UH System policy.

Lecturers in Law/Adjunct Faculty may use a current Hawai`i State Bar Association membership card to register but it allows a shorter loan period.

Visiting Scholars/Practitioners must be verified by the Law School administration (Dean’s Office) before they can be registered and granted temporary library privileges. Other faculty privileges may be granted after consultation with the Law Library Director.
