During the 2023 - 2024 academic year, can I access the library if I am not a Georgetown student? Is the library open to the public? Who may use the library?

Can I get a library card from the Law Library?


Our building status and access policy will be found on the top banner on the Law Library's homepage or the Who May Use the Library page. Members of the public who wish to access the library are welcome to join the Friends of the Library Program. The Supporter tier comes with the benefit of one year's physical access to the library. Law Firms, In-house and general counsels, and government agencies may also apply to join the Law Library Membership Program if they qualify as such. If you have additional questions, please email Access Services, lawcirc@georgetown.edu. Both the Friends and Membership Programs provide library cards that must be shown to the security staff in order to gain entry into the library building. However, the Law Library does not issue Friends or Memberships cards that grant the card holder borrowing privileges.

Please contact Special Collections regarding questions about materials that they carry and to make an appointment to visit their reading room.

If there is material in our circulating collection that you're interested in borrowing, please always consult your home library. We cannot act on requests sent to us from individuals who are not directly and currently affiliated with the Law Center (i.e. current law faculty, law staff, or law student). Your own library will be able to assist you in obtaining reading materials from other libraries.
