Remote Learning Guide for Students

Law Library

NCCU School of Law has transitioned to online classes, but the Law Library and its resources are still available to help you SOAR. Library Hours are posted on the Law Library website and are updated promptly to reflect changes. We are available to provide virtual assistance with research and reference services Monday through Friday, from 9 AM to 5 PM via chat, email, or teleconference (Zoom).

You can also email the reference staff at lawref@nccu.edu, or Zanada Joyner, zjoyner3@nccu.edu, Matthew Neely, mneely5@nccu.edu, or Emily Hoffman, ehoffma2@nccu.edu.

Library Resources

DATABASES

There are several online databases available to assist you in your learning and research. Below is a shortlist of some of the most frequently used databases, and additional databases are available through the Law Library and the Shepard Library websites.  Please check out this guide for additional highlights on Lexis +, Westlaw, and our study aid collection.

LIBRARY ONLINE CATALOG

Our catalog contains information on all of our available materials, including access to hundreds of e-books. If the source you're interested isn't available online, use our Grab & Go service!

INTERLIBRARY LOAN (ILL)

The NCCU Law Library is dedicated to ensuring that you have the materials you need to continue your studies and research. However, with the closure of many libraries across the country, please note that fulfilling Interlibrary Loan requests may be complicated. We will do our best to retrieve items that you need, and retrieval of electronic materials (journal articles, etc.) may be easier than getting physical things. Please reach out to staff in Interlibrary Loan if something specific you need is something we do not own. 

RESEARCH GUIDES

The Law Library has created Research Guides about many areas of law, including many of your substantive courses - Take a look at the full list of available guides here!

ONLINE STUDY AIDS

Links to our online study aids and detailed instructions are available here.  The library provides access to the West Academic Study Aid Library, the Wolters Kluwer Study Aid Library, and the LexisNexis Digital Library.

STUDENT ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES

If you are having difficulties with remote learning, help is available. For specific questions, email studentdisabilityservices@nccu.edu with a brief description and your contact information, OR, if preferred, Law Students may contact the Office of Wellness for assistance with their case at brett.bowers@nccu.edu
