Congratulations!!  We at the law library hope we have played a small part in your success.  After completing your studies at Cleveland-Marshall, there are many ways in which you can continue to benefit from the law library.

You still will have access to important databases such as HeinOnline, Westlaw and others from the public computers. Grads can also access our wireless network CSUGUEST.
