Want to talk with a law librarian?  We have three ways:

1. Stop by the Reference Desk on the 2nd Floor of the Law Library, 

2. Request an in-depth one-on-one research consultation: consultation request, or

3. If it's Friday between 10am-2pm, hit us up on Zoom (link below).


1. Stop by the Reference Desk on the 2nd Floor

Our Reference Desk, located at the 2nd Floor Service Desk, is staffed by our six dual-degreed law librarians five days a week.  Stop by and see us sometime!

2. Request a one-on-one consultation

To request a one-on-one consultation with a law librarian, please complete this form:

Whether you are just beginning your first research paper or preparing for a summer internship, our librarians are available to meet with you one-on-one to talk about your specific research needs.

   Join Zoom Meeting 


Our Virtual Reference Desk is open and available Fridays from 10am to 2pm.  Have a question for a Research Librarian?  Join us in Zoom from our website at Virtual Reference Desk or at Meeting ID: 930 5184 4067.  The Waiting Room feature in Zoom has been enabled, so if we don't click you in right away, we are likely working with another patron and will admit you to the Zoom Meeting as soon as we are finished helping them.  Please be patient.  Thank you! :) 

This recurring zoom meeting will be hosted by one of our six dual-degreed Research Librarians every Friday from 10am to 2pm.  Our Research Librarians have all earned their JDs as well as Masters degrees in Library and Information Science, and are standing by to answer any question you may have about legal research, the law library, or law school in general.  We're here to help!
