I considered that since a little noise doesnt bother me. I might try it for a few hours, then switch to the library at 10.

There's also a University of Phoenix campus nearby, I've been in there before and they have little study rooms. I thought about just walking in there and taking one of the rooms nice and early. Who exactly would notice I was out of place?

On Saturdays I would like to wake up early (7ish) and study for a full day. Most PT law students have told me they require at least 1 full (8hour) weekend day to get caught up on reading and outlines for the week.

The problem is, building on what I am reading above I would like to avoid the LS library. I have a public library about half a mile away from my house, but I looked into it today and it is only open from 10a-5p on Saturdays. My house is not a great option because we have 2 young kids and my wife and I both agree I'll be more productive and be able to spend time with the family sooner if I leave the house to study.

So, any outside the box ideas on how/where people have studied while avoiding the law school library?


Something I did in undergrad a lot which you may find useful is studying in empty classrooms on campus, although I don't know how different that will be from the library for you, depending upon on why you're avoiding it.

Not a bad idea, I'm going to have to consider that. I don't have any personal reasons for avoiding the library other than some comments earlier in this thread, plus the fact my LS is about 30 minutes away downtown, and Law School Confidential advising against entering the snake pit during finals time because the anxiety is contagious.
