Preview of Coming Attractions

Tarlton Tours

Library tours for incoming students will take place the first week of school. These 30-minute tours are a great way for students to become familiar with the facilities, materials, and services of the Tarlton Law Library. Students can sign up for tours through the link on the library's homepage.  


Tartlon hosts LibraryFest, its annual open house, on Tuesday, September 18, from 11:30am - 2:00pm. Students get to explore the library, talk to librarians, enjoy refreshments, earn gifts, and enter prize drawings. LibraryFest, popular with all law students, is particularly valuable for new law students as they familiarize themselves with Tarlton and its resources.  


At the end of September, 1Ls will have memo trainings from Bloomberg, Lexis, and Westlaw representatives. Most trainings take place in Tarlton's computer classroom, but some have been scheduled outside the Library. Training times and locations for Legal Analysis and Communication sections will be posted on this website at the end of August.   

(1Ls will receive their passwords during orientation.)
