According to Northeastern's Covid-19 guidelines, the Law Library is currently open only to Northeastern University students, faculty and staff. Students from area law schools and universities whose institutions are members of the New England Law Library Consortium or the Boston Library Consortium may request books through their institution's interlibrary loan (ILL). 

All students, faculty and staff may be asked to present their Northeastern ID to access the law library.  The law library is open when the building (Knowles) is open (to be determined for the fall semester).

Circulating Materials

Northeastern University students may borrow circulating materials for 90 days with two renewals allowed.

To conform with health and safety guidelines, Law Library borrowing procedures have been modified for the 2020-2021 school year. The fourth floor of the Knowles Center, which houses the Law Library's circulating collection, will be closed to students. Students wishing to borrow books from the circulating collection may do so by visiting the InfoDesk during business hours or emailing LawLibrary@northeastern.edu.

Returned books should be placed in the book drop, located near the InfoDesk. Returned books will be quarantined and may not be borrowed again until the quarantine period has expired.

All library books must be returned and lost book charges paid before students are allowed to graduate.

Non-Circulating Materials

A number of items within the law library’s collection may not be checked out of the library. These include all state and federal primary materials, legal periodicals, citators, digests, loose-leaf services, encyclopedias, and reference sources.
