In addition to providing a comfortable and inviting place for individual and group study, the law library offers an array of services that support the research and academic endeavors of our students at the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center.
LSU Law students may print from all the computers in the library. Print jobs can be sent to the Law Center Print Center on the 1st floor, or to the Lexis or Westlaw printers on the 2nd (computer lab). Printing to the Lexis and Westlaw printers is free. Printing to the Law Center print center is $0.06 per page. Students are given $90.00 print credit per academic year. Additional print funds can be added through Tiger Cash.
To release print jobs or to check your print account, go to http://lawprint1.law.lsu.edu/MyPrintJobs.
To print from your laptop you will need to download software and follow the instructions from the IT FAQ. This service is only available to LSU Law students.
The law library provides two BookEye overhead scanners – one in the Reserve Room and one in the Print Center area – which allow you to scan PDFs of library materials free of charge and email them to yourself or save them to a flash drive. Instructions for using the scanners are available on their touch screens.
Our reference librarians have created a collection of research guides to assist students with their legal research. There are guides geared toward specific courses as well as general guides such as the one on “1L Resources” and the “State Bar Exam Information” guide. Use these research guides to get started on your research project or as a refresher as you conduct your research.
The Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) provides over 950 interactive computer-based tutorials in over 35 legal subjects. These lessons are designed to supplement traditional law school instruction and are used by law students throughout the country to review course materials and prepare for exams. To access CALI Lessons, stop by or email the Reference Desk for the authorization code.
Library work stations require a LSU Law Center Username (same as your PAWS username) and a Law Center password. Your initial password is e-mailed to you during orientation. After that you may change your password using the Student Password Self Service Portal.
