Quick Guide to the Law Library

This guide provides resources to help new CWRU Law students get started with Law School and become more familiar with the Law Library.


Welcome to the CWRU School of Law  

The primary responsibility of the Law Library is to support the teaching and research functions of the CWRU School of Law and other Case Western Reserve University researchers who need to use legal materials.   During Law School Final exams, the access policy will change and non-law users with legal research needs must request access at the security desk. The Law Library hours will change occasionally, extending during final exams periods and shortening during intersessions, between semesters and over holidays. Information about the Law Library's hours and scheduled closures are available on the library hours page.
