Alumni have reading privileges in the Library. A valid Alumni ID is required to access the law school. Alumni IDs may be obtained by contacting the Office of Alumni Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org during regular business hours. Additional information for Alumni may be found on the Alumni Opportunities page.
Alumni have access to in-library use of books, the school’s wifi, and to some of the library’s digital resources. Alumni may not check out books, request items via interlibrary loan, or obtain access to Cardozo’s Lexis, Westlaw, and Bloomberg Law accounts. Alumni also have access to LARC, the Lillian & Rebecca Chutick Scholarly Repository and Institutional Archives.
Alumni do not have off-site access to any of the commercial databases available at the Cardozo Law School Library. Additionally, due to University IT security policies, on-site access to commercial databases that permit University-wide access is limited to alumni who bring and use their own personal devices and connect through YU-Visitor WiFi. Some digital resources provided by other Yeshiva University libraries are available off-site.
The staff of the Library views its patrons as professionals. In turn, patrons are expected to conduct themselves as professionals. This expectation extends to a thorough knowledge of all Library Policies, compliance with said policies, and a general civil deportment towards Library Staff and fellow patrons.
