Library & IT Resources Available After Graduation for December Graduates


For December graduates, there is excitement and stress.  In addition to achieving a milestone, graduation from law school, you will soon start to prepare for another milestone:  the bar exam.  Congratulations!  There are resources available from the library to help you.

As you prepare for the bar exam in February, here is some information.  Remember to check out the library’s information resource guides on the bar exam and job hunting! Don’t forget that the library has two iPads with Bar Max loaded on them. Please stop by the Reference Desk to check these out. They have practice multiple choice questions. You can also browse bar review materials in this office.

South Carolina Advance Sheets are available in print in Row 39A or adjacent to the Circulation Desk; they are available in electronic format too.

You will continue to have access to the library until the end of the February bar exam with your SONITROL card. You will be able to use the library’s study rooms, check out materials, and print through the end of February.

Spring semester library hours are posted here and are as usual.  Over the December holiday break, which begins at noon on Friday, December 16th,and runs through 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 3rd, the library, along with the law school, will be closed for the holiday break.  On Monday, January 16, 2017, the library, along with the school, will be closed for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

After graduation, you will receive emails from Westlaw and Lexis that will allow you to extend their bar prep resources through March.  If you have questions about that, check with Professor Melissa Strickland.  Bloomberg Law provides access for 6 months after graduation, i.e. June 2017.

Bar prep class videos from Summer 2016 can be here.
