Since the law library is primarily a reference collection, most materials cannot be checked out. Only single-volume treatises, which are not updated in any way, can be checked out. Reference books may not be checked out. Books may not be placed on reserve for the purpose of cite-checking.
Each journal is provided with law library borrowing cards, to be used by journal staff to check circulating books out of the law library.
The Law Library is not a part of CUA Libraries. Please refer to the CUA Libraries tab for information on their borrowing policies.
Law students must use their own CUA ID to check out materials from the other CUA libraries on campus. The journal cards are not accepted at these libraries. All graduate students, including law students, are entitled to a loan period of one semester for regular circulating items at CUA libraries.
