Quiet Please, We’re a Library!

In Read This on February 27, 2014 at 9:16 pm

Schmid Law Library is a great place to study: lots of natural light due the many windows, a remodeled space and comfortable area to spend hours preparing, reading and reviewing for class. We are proud to be your home away from home! That being said, we are a library and insist on maintaining space for quiet study.

Reading Room 1

The M. Brian Schmid Reading Room on the second floor is a great space for just that. Please respect your fellow students (and future colleagues) by using the reading room appropriately – it is for quiet individual study and food is not allowed.

Calling all Nebraska Law Students! Sign up for your free Practical Law student account.

Practical Law

Practical Law is an online interactive forms database that’s available to all law students for free for you to use throughout law school, until six months after you graduate. The service, first developed in England and recently acquired by Thomson Reuters (West), is designed to provide you with a comprehensive collection of forms that can be used in practice. It’s also designed to be simple for you to register.

Unfortunately, intentions haven’t quite met up with practice. To register, follow this link: and click on the button/banner for student registration. Be sure to fill out the form completely, including your anticipated year of graduation and UNL email address. If the web form isn’t filled out completely, you won’t receive an error message.

If you don’t hear back from them within a few days, call this phone number: 646-562-3405. If you have any further difficulties registering, please see one of the librarians for help.
