Policies

Through Attorney Services, various law library services are made available to attorneys, judges and other legal-related professionals in Oregon and the Vancouver, Washington area. The following policies and rules apply:

  1. Requests for services are to be addressed to Attorney Services personnel during the normal work day (Monday - Friday: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm).

  2. Law Library materials checked out through Attorney Services are for the sole use of the person to whom the materials are provided. The person borrowing materials is not authorized to loan or deliver borrowed materials to a third person. The person to whom material is loaned may request authorization to borrow materials for a supervising attorney or law firm associate.

  3. The client is entirely responsible for the use and return of all materials provided through Attorney Services. Late materials may incur a fine, and lost materials will be billed the replacement cost and a $15.00 replacement fee.

  4. Renewals of law library materials may be requested by contacting the Attorney Services office at (503) 768-6705. Materials will be renewed at the discretion of the Attorney Services staff based on current demand and use by all Law Library patrons. There is an additional $10 charge per renewal.

  5. In deciding what we can scan or photocopy, we abide by the terms of our licensing agreements and copyright laws.

Attorney Library Cards

Attorneys Library Cards are available to alum and non-alum attorneys. See our Circulation Policies for costs and more information.

Please note that due to the COVID-19 emergency the campus is closed to all except for current Lewis & Clark Law School students, faculty, and staff. If library card holders wish to check out any books (and please note that much of the print collection is not available for checking out), please email lawcirculation@lclark.edu or 503-768-6676 to make arrangement to pick up the books.

Unfortunately, ebooks are not available to attorney cardholders. During this emergency attorneys may not remain and perform research in the library. Please contact one of our virtual reference librarians with any research or resource questions.
