Welcome New Students!

Our M.J. students enjoyed orientation on June 20th, our LL.M. students started orientation on August 8th, and our S.J.D. and J.D. students will join us during orientation on August 19th.  We’re so excited that you’re here at IU McKinney, and we look forward to meeting everyone soon.

In preparation for the new academic year, we’re happy to provide library services and quiet study spaces at the Ruth Lilly Law Library inside the law school at Inlow Hall.  Please check out our website for more information on what you can find here in the library, such as copiers, computer labs, course reserves, access to legal databases, and more!: http://mckinneylaw.iu.edu/library/

At the Circulation Desk, we have fliers with information about the library that you can take with you, including information about our school and library’s policies and procedures.  We also have free bookmarks, and additional literature from our partners, such as the Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program (JLAP) which has a special interest and service for law students.  Come visit!

We underwent a large shifting and renovation project this past summer, and our library map has changed.  We’ll have map handouts at the desk as well that you can take with you, and please see below for a preview of our updated library layout.

About Laura M. Summers

Come visit me at Circulation! As a current library science student, I am interested in the interplay of libraries, the government, and the law. I have an avid interest in correctional facility libraries, and hope to be a part of bettering our approach to patrons behind bars.
