Law Library


Reserve Collections are maintained by both Williams and Wolff Libraries behind the respective Circulation Desk of each. The Course Reserve Collection, located in the Williams Library, contains the required reading for all courses. These materials may be check out for a period of three hours, and they may be renewed once as long as a hold request has not been placed.

Course Reserves

To identify course reserve material:

  • go to the GULLiver home page;
  • look for the search box labeled Find Course Reserves By;
  • search by either professor our course name.

The Williams reserve collection also contains unbound journals, Sum & Substance CD's and tapes, and selected newspapers. The Wolff Library reserve Collection contains unbound journals related to international law plus a limited number of hornbooks, nutshells and casebooks.

The Williams Library Reading Room Reserve area, which is located in an alcove off the west end of the Reading Room, contains a separate collection of study aids such as hornbooks, nutshells, Emanuel law outlines, the law "Stories" series, and the Examples and Explanations series, plus materials that support the Legal Writing and Research program. These materials may be used in the library for an unlimited period of time.

Web-based Management Software

Many professors use web-based management software. Links to these are below. In addition, Georgetown Law uses a course materials distribution system that enables students to purchase print materials or files online. The separate course management solutions by Georgetown Law are Georgetown Law Courseware and TWEN, which requires a Westlaw login.


Exams from past Law Center courses are maintained by the library in electronic and print formats. Access to all exams from 1998 to the present is provided through an electronic archive of exams.You log in using your NetID and password. You can download documents in bulk for any course/professor combination. In addition, you will see a personalized list of professors teaching courses for the current term. This is reset at the beginning of each term, and is updated within 28 hours of any drop/add activity.

Exams prior to 1998 are in print volumes on Reading Room shelves, on the right side of the corridor leading to the Special Collections reading room. Check the exam index at the Reference Desk to find out which volume contains the exams you want.
