There are 380 individually assigned carrels in the Law Library. Individual study carrels are assigned to full time second- and third-year law students, as well as to LL.M. students. A carrel may be assigned to the student as long as resident, full-time law school enrollment status is maintained. Once a carrel is chosen, it remains that student's carrel until graduation. However, if the student accepts a carrel or desk in another area of the law school (e.g., Law Review, TLCP, JCL, JGRJ, or Legal Clinic) the student is ineligible for a library carrel and must return the carrel. Users may not store or display items on top of their carrels, and should keep the carrel neat. A student may ask to make a switch, but only at the beginning of each semester.
First-year law students are not eligible for assigned study carrels. However, a first-year law student may temporarily use a carrel if it is unoccupied. Additionally, there are ample seats at library study tables in the library for all first year law students.
