Not every Library resource is listed in this guide. The LUC Library Catalog is where you'll find a record of every book, e-book, set of books, and journal (by title) in LUC libraries. The Library Catalog also provides access to many but not all titles that LUC provides access to via subscription databases.
Searching by the following subject headings is another way to locate relevant resources.
The purpose of this guide is to connect students and alumni with Law Library resources on securing a job in and succeeding in the legal profession. Resources are divided, roughly, by topic. There may be overlap. For example a text on lawyer marketing may have a section on young lawyers and a text on succeeding as a young lawyer may have a section on marketing. This guide provides links to both print resources available through the Law Library as well as to many online resources.
This guide is intended as a complement to the resources available through the Office of Career Services which helps law students and alumni assess career goals, explore the many and varied applications of a legal education, and make the transition from school to a professional career or career enhancement through services such as:
Resources from Commercial Services
Magazines and Newsletters
The Office of Career Services should be a first stop for LUC Law students and alumni with career questions.
