The Tarlton Law Library’s physical facility, including Special Collections, is closed until further notice. Tarlton’s librarians and staff remain actively engaged in providing library services. Student tech support (firstname.lastname@example.org) and faculty and student reference assistance (https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/email) will be available during business hours. Students can also consult our Library and Technology Support FAQ (https://tarlton.law.utexas.edu/student-remote) for most frequently needed information.
Whether you are just starting to think about a paper topic or are putting the finishing touches on your final draft, now is always a good time to ask a law librarian for help researching a seminar paper or law review note.

The Library has authored many guides that may help as you work on your seminar paper. In particular:
