Library Access

Published on: Author: Teresa L

We are 99% finished in the renovation and have now re-opened. Who can use the library?
• Current Hastings students can of course use the library during regular library hours.
• Members of the California Bar, Hastings alumni, and law students from other law schools may use the library whenever it is open (including evening and weekend hours). Library hours are listed here. These library patrons are required to sign-in at the first floor Security Desk after showing appropriate ID, and then they will be issued a visitor pass good for that day.
• The general public may use the Hastings Law Library from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. All library visitors are required to show a state-issued ID and to sign-in at the first floor Security Desk. Visiting library patrons will be issued a visitor’s pass good for that day, if they can state a valid reason for entering the library. Visitor passes must be worn at all times while in Hastings’ buildings. The Security Desk cannot issue visitor passes to members of the general public for evening and weekend access.
