Law Library Status

The Law Library is open only to the Law School community, including 2021 Catholic University Law graduates.

In accordance with DC and campus guidelines to protect themselves and those in our community who are unable to receive the vaccine, those who have not been vaccinated should continue to wear a mask at all times.

Please note, certain services are only being offered online, such as Reference and Computer Assistance. In addition, the Law Library is unable to supply earplugs and other office supplies during this time.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these restrictions. This guide provides information on how the Law Library is responding to the current situation and how we are continuing to support the curricular and research needs of the Law School community.

Law students, faculty and staff should continue to check the Law School and Law Library websites for further updates. We appreciate your patience as we translate the University’s latest guidelines into Law Library procedures.

Research Assistance

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Reference is currently only available online M-F 10am-6pm

Reference librarians are available in the Reference Room during the hours listed below. Library users are encouraged to avail themselves of their services.  Law students may request an in-person research consultation session with a reference librarian or email their research questions to the reference staff using the links below.  The reference librarians will be happy to assist you in using library resources, or discuss with you strategies for doing specialized legal research.
