Law Faculty Services

This guide contains information on the liaison program and on how the Law Library can support your teaching, research, and scholarship.

Teaching Support

The Law Library can support you in your teaching in many ways, including:

  • Offering books and other course materials on reserve in the Reserve Room for student use;
  • Requesting copyright clearance for articles or other print materials that you wish to distribute in a course;
  • Providing in-class research instruction in a seminar or other course with a paper requirement;
  • Creating a list of resources or an online research guide for a particular course; and
  • Providing one-on-one research consultations to assist students with a seminar paper or similar requirement.

Contact your Liaison for more information on these services or if you have questions about other ways you would like the Library to support your teaching.

Ordering Materials

The Law Library is happy to order copies of casebooks and other course materials for student use. Email your Liaison what course materials you would like the Library to acquire. Once the materials arrive, they will be placed in the Reserve Room for students to use and check out for a limited duration.

The Library also welcomes suggested additions to the collection, particularly if they will assist in your scholarship and teaching.

Classroom Technology

The College's classrooms have a variety of hardware to facilitate your teaching, including podiums, projectors, and document cameras. For general information on classroom technology, see the Office of Distance Education and eLearning's Classroom Technology guide.
