Welcome from the Library Director

On behalf of the Mendik Library, I want to welcome everyone back for another exciting year. And, in particular, welcome to the entering Class of 2022-23!  We are all looking forward to meeting you as you embark on this challenging and exciting journey.

We have worked hard to make your library a comfortable study and learning environment.  The Mendik Library is a vibrant and dynamic information and research center.  You can be assured that you are getting the benefit of an outstanding collection of information and technology resources, an extensive offering of services, and an excellent and dedicated library staff.

We describe our resources and services in great detail on our web pages and guides. What you might not realize from these publications is the outstanding quality of the Mendik Library Staff and why that is important to you.  Your librarians have many years of experience working in law libraries and teaching legal research.  Many have J.D. degrees from law schools around the country and years of legal practice experience.  They have been where you are going.  They can help you with your library and research needs, of course, but their value to you goes far beyond that.  Do not hesitate to ask us questions about the law school, particular courses, or any of the extracurricular activities available.  We can help you, or we will direct you to the best person to give you the help you need.

Welcome!  We hope the library will quickly become your second home.  To our new 1L community members, we recognize that law school is a new experience for each of you, and we are committed to making that experience a rewarding one.  We look forward to the opportunity to work with you throughout your law school career and thereafter as alumni.
