Getting Ready for Law School Finals

As you prepare for finals, here is a handy list of library tips and reminders. 

Extended Hours - The Law Library opens at 8:00 a.m. and closes at midnight through Thursday, Dec. 22.  During exam periods, access to the Law Library is restricted to law students, faculty & staff, and individuals doing legal research or using the federal documents collection. 

Law students: please have your UW ID card with your green gargoyle label ready to identify yourself. Labels are available at the Circulation Desk.

Exam Information - Be sure to regularly check the Law School's web page for important announcements regarding finals. Many faculty members post old exams on the website which are accessible with your net ID. You can also download exam software.

Study Guides for 1L Courses - This concise listing highlights study aids for 1L classes but there are also numerous guides on other subjects.  The reference librarians will be glad to suggest study resources.

Reference Assistance - Have a quick question? Use our IM / Chat service while you study.  Reference help is a click away.

Printing - Computer lab assistants are scheduled during extended library hours to help with any questions regarding printing, software usage, or laptop network configuration. Their office is located in Room 2390.  In addition to the printer on the 5th floor of the library, there is a printer in the computer lab.  Keep this in mind when printing those take-home exams.

Study Rooms - Stop at the Circulation Desk to reserve one of the Library's seven study rooms.

Please remember to respect those around you by keeping noise to a minimum, turning off your cell phones, and abiding with the library's no food policy.  

Good luck on your finals!
