Paralegal Students, Want to Use Local Law Library? Just Ask.

Sometimes I hear paralegal students complain about the lack of comprehensive and up-to-date law resources in their school libraries, especially in smaller programs. I’ve been lucky enough to have access to a major law school library both as a paralegal student and a working paralegal. If you have a local law library within driving distance, try asking for access, as recommended by Campbell Law School Dean Melissa Essary in an interview with WRAL.COM:

I am a student in the paralegal program at Meredith College. Will you welcome Meredith students to use your law library for research and study? Mary Schindo, Raleigh

Mary, we want our facilities to be available for practicing members of the North Carolina Bar, and we equally want to be a good partner to our friends enrolled at Meredith and other local programs. I would recommend that you schedule an appointment with our library staff to use our resources.

With more than 400 individuals enrolled at Campbell Law School, our library professionals must first focus on the study and research needs of our students. However, if you were to schedule time with our library staff to utilize certain resources, we should be able to accommodate your request.

Essary’s interview also contains some excellent practical advice for anyone considering applying to law school.
