Law Library Collection Move

This summer the law Library staff completed a major shift of the collection. The major changes occurred in the Main Reading Room: current Virginia practice materials (all the current CLE’s) current tax Materials (Tax Alcove is gone), current Restatements, current Fourth Circuit state codes, and current Uniform Laws Annotated are all now in the Main Reading Room, along with some materials that were there before the shift. For complete collection locations consult the Law Library Floor Plan available at the Circulation Desk.
