Checkouts and Fines
Circulation Loan Periods
The standard student loan period for circulating materials is 30 days.
The reserve collection, located behind the circulation desk, includes study aids such as hornbooks, nutshells, examples and explanations, the roadmap series, frequently used treatises, a number of current Virginia treatises, and audio and video tapes. Class readings placed on temporary reserve by law faculty are also available. Reserve materials are noted as "LAW-RSV" in the automated catalog (LION). Reserve materials—both permanent and class reserves—normally circulate for four hours. Some, like videos, circulate for one day.
