Guide to the Law Library at UH Manoa : LLTK Program

A guide to the University of Hawaii Law Library.

Law Library Textbook Kokua Program

Law Library Textbook Kokua (LLTK) Program

To address the pressing need among financially burdened students for affordable textbooks, the Law Library will lend textbooks for up to ten first-year law students for those who are unable to afford to purchase them.

  • The loan period will be for the full semester. 
  • This collection is created for students to partially address an equity gap and work toward low-cost or no-cost access to courses.
  • There is no income level that determines eligibility for students to check out materials from the LLTK collection.
  • However, financially burdened students typically have little to no expected parent contribution as part of their financial aid package. 
  • We expect Richardson students to evaluate their own situation and apply for participation in the LLTK program only if they are truly in need as we have a limited number of textbooks to share with you.

Any first-year law student who self-identifies as in need of financial assistance for their textbook purchases, may check out textbooks at the Law Library for the semester. To receive borrowing privileges, students must complete the private LLTK Access Form Fall 2021 (download and open the form in Adobe Reader to fill it out online). Please send the completed form to ellenrae[at]hawaii[dot[edu.  This way, the process of receiving access is as private as possible.

Within two business days after entering the form, you will be notified via e-mail at your address to schedule a time to pick up your item.  

  • If the supply of textbooks has been depleted, we will inform you immediately. 
  • When you arrive at the Law Library circulation desk, inform the circulation assistant that you have books on hold from the LLTK collection and present your school identification card or other government issued identification. 
  • We kindly ask that you do not permanently mark up or highlight these books as we intend to use them for the next entering class if possible.
