Q. Does the library have my casebook? Or other textbooks?
One copy of the required texts for 1L courses, Evidence, Corporations, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Professional Responsibility, Tax I, Constitutional Law II, and Securities Regulations are purchased by the Library and kept on Course Reserve at the Circulation Desk for the entire semester.
The library maintains a collection of donated casebooks. We retain multiple copies of the latest 2 editions of any casebook donated by students or faculty at the Circulation Desk. If you search our catalog, an entry of Casebook Reserve indicates that it is available at the Circulation Desk (202-662-9131) and can be checked out for 3 hours at a time.
The library may also house required or recommended readings for other courses, and other than casebooks, in our Reserves, if a faculty has specifically requested that we do so. Search the Course Reserves catalog for the course name, course ID or course instructor if your faculty informs your class that the reading materials are on Reserves.
The library may happen to have a class reading in the general collection which had not been requested by the faculty to be placed on Reserves. You may find such titles by performing a search in the Law Library's general catalog.
