Alumni Access to the Library

Congratulations to all our graduating law students!

Did you know that you can still access the law library long after graduation? It’s true! As a law alum, you can continue to use the library facilities and collection throughout your career. Just a few of the perks of being alumni include:

  • on-site access to electronic databases, including LexisNexis Academic (federal and state cases, statutes and more)
  • access to the library whenever we are open, including exams
  • ability to borrow up to 5 books for 4 weeks at a time (with an alumni card, see below)
  • online renewal options and account review access
  • a wealth of Georgia practitioners’ resources, such as civil and criminal forms, topical treatises and handbooks
  • research assistance from the librarians
  • a Bloomberg Terminal
  • printers, copy machines and a scanner (email and flashdrive enabled)
  • so much more!
Now, there are a few restrictions too. For example, you won’t be able to access our electronic resources from off-site. We also aren’t able to borrow books from other libraries (via ILL or GIL Express) for you. And finally, you must have an alumni card to borrow books. To obtain an alumni card, contact Alumni Affairs (Alumni Hall, 30 Courtland Street, Suite 133  — or — 404/413-2190) to arrange for your card. A $50 donation is required.

We hope that you continue to see the law library as a resource throughout your career!
