There are 380 individually assigned carrels in the Law Library. Study carrels are assigned to full-time first, second, and third year law students, and LL.M. and eligible international law persons. You will have the assigned study carrel until you complete your studies. If you have a carrel or desk space in another area of the College of Law (for example, Law Review, TLCP, JCL, JGRJ, or Legal Clinic) you are no longer eligible for a study carrel in the Law Library and must relinquish the library carrel. Initial study carrel sign-up occurs at the beginning of fall semester. If you would like to change carrels, please ask at the Circulation Desk after the initial sign-up period has ended.
The Law Library has a group study room for two to eight law students, in Room 126. The room has two conference tables and eight chairs. On the wall, there is a large computer monitor that can be connected to a student laptop. There is also a whiteboard on a tripod easel.
The room may be reserved on Outlook for two-hour blocks of time. To reserve the room:
- Log into your calendar on Office 365
- Select "New" in the upper left corner
- Add a title for the reservation (example: Con Law Study Group)
- Select "Add Room," and under BLB Resources, select RES-BLB126-LAWLIB
- Make sure that the Private box is not checked
- Click "Send" in the upper left corner
You will receive an email confirming the reservation. Recurring reservations, reservations outside of library operating hours or within half an hour of closing, and reservations with a duration longer than two hours will be rejected.
Please see the Circulation Desk if you need assistance.
