Library study room

Seattle University Law Library is open to all Seattle University faculty, staff, students, and alumni who are engaged in research or studies that require the use of legal material. Circulation privileges are limited to faculty, staff, currently enrolled students, or alumni who purchase library memberships. Members of the general public can purchase a $5 day pass for access to the Library with no circulation privileges.

Members of the general public have full access to the United States government documents acquired by the Library through its membership in the Federal Depository Library Program.

All non-law school patrons must show identification at the Circulation Desk and complete the "Visitors' Registration Form." Access to "restricted" or "limited license" electronic resources, word processing capabilities, and interlibrary loan services are not available to non-law school patrons. Check at Lemieux Library for services provided to Seattle University faculty, staff, and students.

During reading and examination periods, access to the Law Library is limited to law students, alumni, faculty, and researchers with specific collection needs.
