Circulating Accessories and Equipment

The law library provides much more than access to books and online resources.  We also offer a selection of circulating accessories and equipment for your convenience, including the items listed below. We use a UV sanitizing machine to sanitize all circulating items between uses.

  • book stands
  • calculators
  • chalk and erasers
  • chargers (including iphone, Android, MacBook, and USB-C)
  • dry-erase markers and erasers
  • earplugs (free and yours to keep)
  • headphones

Course Reserves/Required Textbooks

The law library purchases 1 copy of every required casebook and textbook each semester (except for statutory supplements). Because these items are in high demand, they can be borrowed from the service desk for 2 hours and may only be renewed twice. To view the status of any casebook or textbook, simply go to the library catalog and use the drop-down menu to search by Professor. Type in the faculty member's name and a list of their classes will appear. Select your course, and a list of required books for the current semester will be displayed.

OverDrive Audiobook Collection: Anti-Racism & Racial Justice

This audiobook collection consists of both non-fiction and fiction titles selected primarily by the faculty and librarians. This collection supports our continued efforts to be an anti-racist law school and to raise awareness in our community about racial justice issues. The collection is available to all law employees and students. To log in to the OverDrive platform, use your St. John's University email address and your X number (with a capital X).

Student Printing

Student printing is supported by the Law School’s Information Technology department. Information regarding student printing can be accessed from their departmental page.
