For the students who will be doing transactional or international legal work this summer, you are welcome to attend but you may also want to set up an individualized training with a librarian. For transactional, email Lisa Junghahn at firstname.lastname@example.org. For international, email Jessica Pierucci at email@example.com.
Can’t make it? Look out for a follow-up email with links to online documentation.
Our hours are different in late April and early May because of Reading & Exam period. After that, hours will change again for the summer. Check our up-to-date calendar: Law Library Hours.
Our visitor policy is also different during the Reading & Exam period so that our space is conducive to study. During that time — April 24 through May 10 — only UCI Law students and UCI faculty and staff can use the Law Library.
STATA is now available in the law Library! We’ve installed STATA/IC (up to 2,047 variables) for all of your non-R data-crunching needs. It’s on just one PC in the law library computer lab for now. (Let us know if you think a different arrangement would work better for the student body!)

Our list of new books is now updated. Last month, the Law Library received several new Matthew Bender practice guides, as well as books covering a wide variety of topics from the law of chocolate, to legal issues in climate change, to a history of the American legal professoriat.
One of our new titles is Waging War, by First Circuit Court of Appeals Judge (and former Harvard Law professor) David J. Barron. The New York Times reviewer said the book is a “rich and detailed history” that “offer[s] a political analysis about how far Congress has been prepared to push its interventions over the years and how defiant presidents have been willing to be.”1
Our list of new books is now updated. Last month, the Law Library received books on a variety of legal topics, including many casebooks for the Spring 2017 course reserves and a couple of titles about famous lawyers who are women.
One of our newly-purchased titles is Sandra Day O’Connor : How The First Woman on The Supreme Court Became Its Most Influential Justice by visiting professor Joan Biskupic. A 2006 New York Times review called it a “well-researched and… revealing account… [That] gets across O’Connor’s blend of smarts and pearls.” 1
