Exiting the Library

Patrons are required to leave the Library promptly at closing and during emergency situations, drills or when asked to leave by Library or security staff after violation of Library policies.

Due to COVID-19, 24 hour key card access has been temporarily discontinued. This summer 2020 session 2, only 3L students taking the bar exam is allowed to enter the library with their key card
1) during library operating hours, Monday-Friday 9am-6pm.
2) after they have reserved a seat for the day.

Students with Key Card Access

EVERYONE, including students with key cards, in the Law Library MUST exit at closing.  There will be announcements at 30, 15 and 5 minutes before closing.  Students must bring their key cards upon exit, then re-enter the Law Library after closing. 

Key card access is a privilege extended to law students. One key card is assigned to one student, and no one else, to access the Law Library after hours.  Students are not allowed to bring family members and friends to the Law Library after hours.  In addition, key card holders cannot hold the door open for other students who forgot their key card to enter the library after hours.  Failure to abide by the rules will result in the loss of this privilege.

Users are responsible for their personal property. Library materials, equipment or property must not be taken from the library building without proper checkout or authorization. Library personnel reserve the right to request a patron to display the contents of his/her bag before he/she exits the library.
