  • Course Reserve Services – Faculty members may submit a request prior to the start of the semester books and other resources (e.g. Journal articles, cases, laws, etc.) to be place on Reserve Section to be used by their students as part of their reading list for the course. Additional materials may be added during the semester. After the semester, materials will be automatically remove from the Reserve Section and return to the shelves.

You will be notified by email of the recall and please return recalled items as soon as practicable. Either bring them to the Law Library circulation desk or send via courier service (e.g. Grab, Lalamove, Toktok, etc.)

Items borrowed can be renewed up to two times as long as no other users have signified a need for that materials. After the two times of renewal, the borrower need to bring and return the materials to the Law Library Circulation section. All borrowed materials must be returned or renewed as soon as it is due to avoid incurring a library fine for the late return of borrowed library material.
