This is our target schedule and may vary week to week based on our staffing levels. 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 available during virtual Reference Hours and will be staffed by one of our sixdual-degreed Research Librarians. 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!
