College of Law Listservs

Important information will be provided to you through the College of Law listservs. As an entering student, you will be added to two law school listservs – one for your entering class (law2023) and one for the entire law school (alllaw). Professor Sandy Placzek manages and moderates these listservs. Please provide the email address you will use throughout law school to Professor Placzek.

When you contact Professor Placzek, type “Class of 2023” in the subject line of your email. In the body of your email, provide your name (as you wish it to be listed) and your email address.

Book lists for your courses are available at in July. When determining which books you need, make sure you are looking on the First Year tab for books for the professor/section to which you have been assigned. Not every section of first year courses uses the same books and resources.

You have several options for obtaining books for your law school courses.

  • New and used books can be purchased in the University Bookstore at the City Campus Union (The East Campus Union is under construction until fall 2020). The bookstore is open on Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
    • Books purchased at the City Campus Bookstore can be charged to your student account using your NCard or paid for with cash, check or major credit cards.
    • The Student Bar Association will host a used book sale at the College of Law during orientation week. Please note that the SBA can only accept cash or check payments.
    • Some students will choose to purchase or rent their books through online resources.
      • This is a perfectly acceptable way to purchase your books. However, when making online purchases or rentals make sure you are purchasing the proper edition of the book.
      • Additionally, not all books will be available from online providers.
    Address Changes

    If your local or permanent address has changed since you submitted your application, please contact Chelsea Wilkinson.
