COVID-19 Book Returns and Fines Policy

Please return Law Library materials at your convenience using the book drop slot to the right of the Law Library entrance on the 3rd floor of JGH. Fines will not be accrued or assessed on items at this time.
2021 Graduates, please also see the Resources for Recent Graduates.

Books can be returned in two ways:
1. Book Drops
The Law Library book drop is located just to the right of the entrance to the Law Library. To use this book drop, you will need to satisfy all campus COVID testing requirements in order to receive a valid green pass and enter the Law School building.
You may also return Law Library books to other campus library book drops. Note, if you use another Columbia Library book drop, retrieval and processing of the returned books will take much longer. 

2. Mailing
If you are unable to come to campus and drop off books, you may mail the books to the Law Library. Please include a note with your UNI and mentioning that this is a book return.
