Congratulations Graduates! Study Rooms and Other Assistance for Grads

capEven after you have completed your studies at Cleveland-Marshall, there are many ways in which you can continue to benefit from the law school and library.

Most importantly, you can continue to use the library’s resources if you apply for an alumni borrower’s card. The application can be found here.

Graduates will also be able to access Bloomberg Law, Lexis Advance and WestlawNext for 6 months after graduation.  If you have any questions on this, please direct them to Brian Cassidy, at b.e.cassidy@csuohio.edu or 216-523-7364.  You will also still be able to access important databases, such as HeinOnline, and others from the public computers in the library.

In addition, when you do come back to visit the law library you will be able to access our wireless using the free unsecured CSUGUEST network.

You will still be able to ask library staff for help with any reference questions you may have in person, by email (research.services@law.csuohio.edu), or by phone (216 687-6877).

Finally, we will do all that we can to help you prepare for the bar exam. CALI lessons will be available to you for up to six months after graduation to help you perfect your legal knowledge. While studying for the bar, you are also welcome to use the student lounge or any of our study rooms.

Best of luck in the future.

Group Study / Loudness in the Library

quietThe library in general is a quiet place for you to study. Sometimes, there is a need for you to participate in group study. The first floor(main floor) is not a quiet area. As such, you can use the area of comfy seats near the main entrance for group study or the tables in the Ohio room. This being said, it is not a cell phone talking zone. As per our Patron Code of Conduct, cell phone conversations are discouraged throughout the library. We recommend you leave the library if you need to talk to anyone on a mobile phone.

Of course study rooms are also available throughout the library for law students to reserve.
