Visiting Other Libraries – As local-area law schools implement policies and procedures in response to the coronavirus outbreak, Cardozo law students’ access to other libraries is subject to change. The most recent information we have is available here. Contact a law school's library directly before visiting in case their policies or operating status has changed. If you do not get a response, assume they are not accepting visitors.
We will post to and update this information on the law library website. Thank you for your patience, and please do not hesitate to reach out to the reference desk email if you have any questions.
