Alumni Access to the CUNY School of Law Library

The CUNY School of Law Library welcomes CUNY Law alumni to its facilities. Alumni may access the Law Library during regular business hours when the Law Library is staffed.

Current law library hours and available services can be found in the current Law Library Guide.

Alumni are requested to check in at the 1st floor Security Desk at 2 Court Square and present a government issued photo ID card in exchange for an access pass which will allow you to enter the law library on the 6th floor. The Security Desk will have a current roster of CUNY Law alumni (provided by the Alumni Office) in order to verify your status.

Access questions may be directed to either Kathy Williams or Ricardo Pla (Access Services Supervisors) during the hours of 10:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. (Monday - Friday) by calling 718-340-4240.

We look forward to having you visit us in our new facility.
