Find out about opportunities to volunteer or donate to the Law Library.

Special Hours

Monday, May 20th - Wednesday May 22nd: The Law Library will be closed from 12pm - 1pm.


Current volunteer opportunities:

Legal Presentations; 1 hour commitment

Have you ever had to explain how the legal system works to a client before you could start helping them? Have you ever wished that your client had a better understanding about the legal process before you met them? Now you can help! The Law Library is seeking volunteers for an exciting new project, our Now What? Legal Informational Series. In this series of presentations, we are seeking to bring a greater understanding of navigating the legal system to the public.

So you have been sued… now what? So you want to update your will… now what? So you are supposed to appear in court… now what? Or any other legal topic that you are comfortable speaking about. You can be an integral part of helping people understand what they need to do and what to expect from the legal process. As a volunteer, you would volunteer to speak about your legal topic via a Zoom presentation. Presentations will be for an hour which can include a q&a segment if desired.

Law Library Committee; 1 hour per month commitment

The Law Library Committee is seeking new members! Join the Law Library to help advise the Law Library and have a voice in its future. Be the first to know about changes and up and coming programs at the Law Library as well as advocacy opportunities. The Law Library Committee meets once a month most months for 1 hour. Currently meeting online but may transition to hybrid or in-person in the future.
