This orientation guide will answer many of your initial questions about law library services as a new student. For additional information, please take a look at the law library website. We recommend checking the website periodically for the most current information and resources available to you.
Welcome back, and welcome home!
We are looking forward to seeing all HUSL students back on campus at the start of classes on Monday, August 16, 2021. Law students are encouraged to take advantage of reading rooms, carrels, and study room spaces in our beautiful, award-winning library.
Initially, the Law Library will be open to the Howard Law community from Monday - Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm ET, excluding holidays and university closures. We anticipate extending our hours of operation after the start of the semester. To familiarize yourself with the physical library space, a virtual tour of the library can be found here.
In compliance with the District of Columbia and Howard University requirements, appropriate precautions for COVID-19 must be followed by all faculty, students, and staff for the safety and protection of the entire community:
