We welcome GW Law alumni to use the law library. Present your GWorld alumni card or a GW Law alumni card upon entering the library. If you don't have a card, you'll be asked to make a brief stop at the reference desk. Prior to visiting the library, we encourage alumni to browse JACOB, our catalog, to locate legal materials relevant to their research.
GW Law alumni may obtain a law alumni card from the Dean's Office, E214, 202.994.6288, or from the reference desk on the first floor of the law library.
For a GWorld alumni card, please visit the GWorld Card Office in the University Student Center; click here for more information.
