Question: Can non-law students use the law library?


Generally, non-law students at NYU may use the law library if they need to use specific material that is not held in any other NYU libraries. Students should visit the 1st floor reference desk in Bobst Library to obtain a written referral to use the law library. Please note that use of law library databases such as Westlaw and LexisNexis is not extended to non-law students. NYU Libraries has its own LexisNexis subscription, slightly different than the law library's version, available via BobCat's Articles & Databases tab. Please also note that access to the law library for non-law students is restricted at certain times of year (e.g., exam periods). For more information, please see the law library's access policy.
