Alumni Services


LMU Law graduates may use the law library by showing a current Tennessee Bar card to the front desk receptionist or the Security Guard on duty. Law librarians are available to assist our graduates with legal research questions. Although the law librarians cannot conduct legal research for our graduates or their clients, we are available to assist in directing graduates to authoritative and cost-effective legal research sources (please see our contact information on the Librarians page). 


The law library provides access to Westlaw and Lexis Advance from the computer terminal located on the third floor. Graduates can log in to the terminal from the desktop shortcut and access primary federal sources (statutes, regulations, and federal case law) and primary and secondary sources (forms, TN Practitioner’s Series, etc.) for Tennessee. In addition, Lexis Advance provides access to Shepard’s citation service. The computer terminal is not connected to a printer, but documents can be emailed or saved to a flash drive. 


The majority of our print collection is also available in a digital format and installed on the third floor computer (see below). Law library books circulate ONLY to current law students. If you need to borrow a book from our collection, please contact one of the librarians. 


Legal forms and Tennessee secondary sources have been saved to the computer on the third floor. The computer is not connected to a printer, but documents can be sent via email or saved to a flash drive. Follow the shortcuts on the computer’s desktop to access the following:
