The spring semester has ended, with summer approaching and bar study here.  The Law Library will be closed during commencement weekend, Saturday, May 20-Sunday, May 21.  Our schedule for the start of summer will then be:

Summer Session I (Bar study) – May 22-July 24**

Monday-Thursday:  9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Friday:  9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday-Sunday:  Closed

**Exceptions to Regular Hours

Memorial Day, Monday, May 29:   Closed
Monday, July 3:   9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Independence Day, Tuesday, July 4:   Closed
Day before Bar Exams, Monday, July 24:   9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.

As the Library’s shifting project continues into the summer, we’re also making some adjustments to quiet study spaces to better accommodate students studying for the bar. Beginning Monday, May 22:

  • Floors 2, 5, and 6 will be designated for quiet study;
  • Floor 3 will be open but expect noise;
  • Floor 4 will be closed.

We anticipate that floor 6 will also be closed as the project progresses and will post updates at that time.

As always, floor 7 is a Law Student-only quiet reading room.

The full schedule of Law Library hours is posted at and Hours at other University Libraries are posted at

Congratulations to all graduates and continuing students!
