Paralegal Resource Guide: Getting Started

Access to Circulation Services and Study Spaces

Beginning on June 1, the Law Library space will have expanded open hours. We are open Mondays through Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.   

The Law Library will only be open to current Loyola Law students, faculty, and staff, and to current Loyola paralegal students. Only the 3rd floor lobby area will be accessible, and only for picking up books and for printing.

The 4th and 5th floors of the library will not be accessible.
