Access to Other Area Law Libraries

Most of the law schools in the greater New York City area participate in a reciprocal-access agreement with St. John's. Students who wish to study at another university's law library in the greater New York City area should request a letter of introduction from the Rittenberg Law Library by contacting the Circulation Desk in person, via email at [email protected], or by calling ext.1580.

  • book stands
  • calculators
  • chalk and erasers
  • chargers (including iphone, Android, MacBook, and USB-C)
  • dry-erase markers and erasers
