Question for DC law students

Postby 2LLLL » Thu Jan 06, 2011 3:25 pm

Hey, I'm a DC native 2L who goes to law school in a different city but is back home in DC for winter break. I just got my latest LR case note draft back and I'm going to have to put in a lot of work on it for the next week before school starts. So my question is, can I access the library at any of the DC law schools (GULC, GW, CUA, UDC, AU, not really looking to hike out to GMU) without having to show a student ID (which I obviously don't have)?

Don't know about all the ones you mentioned, but Howard has a really nice library, and you can just walk in and do whatever. I know a bunch of people that studied for the lsat there.

Looks like Georgetown lets students from other law schools use the library, and American is open to the public:

George Washington, not so clear. No clue what the OCLC Shares is:

Not at GW. Need a student ID to get through the turnstiles. Unsure if/how you could get guest privileges.

GULC is good about carding us whenever we go through the library. Though if you just need internet, you can take a left before the checkpoint, go down the stairs, and sit on the couches outside the journal offices.
