Study Spaces & Rooms

The Law Library offers numerous areas for study and work.

Carrels and Tables

The library offers over 200 study carrels that current Drake law students may reserve for the academic year or the summer term. Assigned carrels are labeled with the student’s name.

For more information about reserving a carrel, visit Carrel Reservations or stop by the Information Desk.

Non-assigned carrels and tables are open for the use of all library patrons. The lights attached to the carrels and tables do not automatically turn off. Please switch these off when you are done.

Study Rooms

The Law Library offers 20 small, locked study rooms to provide law students an option for a secure and semi-private study space.

Conference/Seminar Rooms

Eight conference rooms are available on the first floor (175 and 177), second floor (267, 268, 269) and in the lower level (LL04, LL15, and LL16). Conference rooms are kept unlocked. In addition, two new Study Lounges (262 and 263), created thanks to a generous bequest from former Assoc. Professor of Librarianship Deborah Sulzbach, provide flexible study and collaboration space for small groups of students.

If a room is not reserved, patrons may walk in and use the room on a modified first-come, first-served basis, with law students having priority over other patrons. 

For more information, including details and availablity for each conference room, visit Library Room Reservations.
