There are eight study rooms for the use of groups of two or more CWSL students with four of these rooms equipped for video viewing.
The sign-up notebook is located at the Circulation Desk and is available for sign-up from 7 am Monday through Friday and at 8 am on weekends.
Students may be asked to present their Student ID to verify their eligibility to make use of the study rooms.
During Reading/Exam Days the notebook must be requested from the Circulation Desk Attendant.
All reservations must be made in person on the day of use.
In addition to the study rooms located within the library, a number of additional study rooms (which are not under Library purview) are available in the 350 building. Sign up sheets for these rooms are located in the first floor Lobby of the 350 building. Graduates of CWSL are allowed access to some of these study rooms.
The study rooms and video viewing rooms are for current California Western School of Law students.
Visitors and students attending other law schools may not use these rooms.
A study room may be reserved only by a GROUP OF TWO OR MORE CWSL STUDENTS.
The group may reserve the room for a single two-hour period with the option to remain if no other group has requested use of the room.
A reservation for a room expires fifteen minutes after the beginning of the time reserved. Therefore, those who are late will risk losing the room they have requested.
If you are not in the study room when your allotted time is up, and you have left your belongings, the next group with a reservation may ask Security to remove your belongings. Security may unplug your computer if necessary, even if this results in loss of data. Neither the security staff nor the library are responsible for any lost items.
CWSL graduates may not reserve study rooms in the 290 building.
However, the study rooms may be used by graduates who are study for the Bar, if not reserved by current students. During Bar Exam preparation we make additional efforts to accommodate our CWSL alumni bar studiers. Study rooms in the 350 building may be reserved by graduates who are studying for the Bar.
Eating, drinking from uncovered containers, alcoholic consumption, and use of tobacco are not permitted in any of the study rooms.
