Carrel Sign-Up Procedure

Share this article

This year, the Law Library is providing study carrels for all law and LLM students to use. Sign-up for these carrels is done online. Sign-up begins at 8AM on Tuesday, August 26, 2014. Once you choose a carrel, the carrel is yours until you graduate. To expedite the carrel sign-up procedure, an online signup has been created. You MUST use this site to reserve a carrel.

Returning 3L students who had carrels last year do not need to sign up again.
