Alumni Library Access for Graduating Students

We know for our graduating students, the end of finals is a major accomplishment. Hang in there – your last round of finals is almost complete.

As an (almost) alumnus of the Touro Law School, if you plan to practice in the area, please consider joining the Alumni Association.

Touro Law Center alumni may obtain certain library privileges through membership in the Alumni Association, which is handled through the Office of Development at 631.761.7066. You can learn more about the many benefits of joining here

Membership is $25 annually – free for the first year to new graduates – and includes access to the following Law Library services:

• Access to our print collection;
• Computer Lab (without printing capabilities);
• Public Access Westlaw;
• Library Databases (on campus only); and
• WiFi capability.

A valid Alumni Association membership card must be presented in order to access these services. You can view our Alumni Access Policy at our website.  

Of course, as an alum, you may also consult a reference librarian should you encounter any legal research queries as you begin your practice of the law – we can assist you with locating books in our collection, tracking down hard-to-find resources, and formulating search queries.  Email us, call us at 631-761-7160, chat with us, or visit us in the reference office.  We're here to help.

We’ll be back to post again next week with resources that are available to you in our collection that will help you prepare for the Bar Exam.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
