You Got This

…this being exclusive access to the Law Library from the start of reading period through the end of exams. Misery loves company, but no one loves the company of noisy undergrads who cannot commiserate about law school. Don’t freak out – your favorite law library workers will be moonlighting as Reading Room bouncers and checking IDs to confirm everyone’s law school affiliation. To keep from being disturbed in your pursuit of academic excellence, keep your Cornell ID next to you with the Law sticker side up while you’re studying and having a good time.

We Also Have

…the study aids, puzzles, and other stress relievers you need to make it through finals. Check out our online study aids or come to the circ desk to borrow a study aid in print format. If you are looking for something to help your studying in a more metaphorical sense, keep your eye out for puzzles and other relaxing activities in and around the Reading Room during finals. We also have the ultimate study aid –  copies of past Law School exams starting from Spring ’07. Would you expect anything less from the Law Library?

Would You Like This?

It’s not every day you’re given a chance to win $500 for writing a legal research paper. But once a year, every 2L, 3L, and LLM is given a chance to win $500 for writing a legal research paper by submitting said legal research paper to the Law Library Cantwell Prize. Do not throw away your shot. Enter your Cantwell Prize submission by May 16.

We will be here throughout finals to cheer you on and grant you access to anything you need to aid your studying. Remember, if you need help with a library resource, a source for your research paper, or just a power source for your electronics, you can find that and more at the circ and ref desk.
