In order to provide adequate study space for law students, access to the Law Library will be restricted during the exam period to law students, law faculty & staff, and individuals needing to do legal research or use the federal documents collection.
Restricted access begins four full weekends before the first proctored law exam. The policy remains in effect until shortly before the last law exam date. Extended hours, during which the library's weekend hours are lengthened, begins the Sunday after Thanksgiving during the fall semester and three weeks prior to the first exam during the spring semester. Restricted access remains in effect during extended hours.
During these hours, Law Library monitors will be posted outside the entrance to the library on the fifth floor. Law students--please have your UW ID card with your green gargoyle label ready to identify yourself (the labels can be obtained at the Law Library Circulation Desk).
We regret any inconvenience that this might cause. If you have questions about the library's policy on restricted access, please contact the Law Library Administrative office at 263-7822.
