UA Law Faculty: Faculty Instructional Support
Librarians will make customized classroom presentations at the request of faculty for any College of Law class. Presentations may focus on the course research pages, resources for selecting paper topics and other subjects as requested. To request a classroom presentation for your class, click here.
Faculty members may request their own complimentary copies of materials under consideration for course use. A handful of legal publishers who still offer faculty copies free of charge are listed below along with their contact info and URL. Note that policies differ among publishers: in some cases, the faculty member must use the text in the course in order to receive the comp’d copy. Faculty members are encouraged to try obtaining free copies for review before requesting office copies be purchased by the Law Library. If you have questions or problems regarding contacting these sources, or if you have suggestions for publishers we have not included, please contact refdesk.

In addition to the permanent Law Reserve collection, the Law Library maintains a temporary reserve shelf consisting of faculty-owned photocopied cases, articles, etc., as well as faculty-owned copies of books to be used by their students during a particular semester. The Law Library assumes that photocopied materials meet federal copyright law guidelines. These items will be returned to you at the end of the semester or tossed at your request. Contact Deborah Beaumont, the Library Specialist in charge of the Circulation/Reserve Desk, to add such items to the temporary reserve collection.

The library maintains an online, password-protected database of past faculty exams for students to access remotely. Faculty members may choose to contribute past exams to this database. Paper copies of exams and sample questions/answers are also available at the reserve desk and at the IKON copy center for students wanting to photocopy them.
The Law Library provides additional services to support the College of Law faculty's instructional needs. Contact the Refdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance, including assistance in gathering information regarding legal textbooks, videos, etc. to be used in your classes.
