Touro Law Center alumni receive library privileges through membership in the Alumni Association, which is handled through the Office of Development at 631.761.7066. A current Alumni Association membership card is the library card for Law Center Alumni. This card must be presented for access and transactions.
Members of the Bench and Bar
Members of the bench and bar may obtain library access by joining the Friends of the Library, handled through the Office of Development at 631.761.7066. Several levels of membership are available.

Law students from other ABA-accredited law schools may request passes to use the library by presenting letters of introduction and currently validated IDs from their own schools at the security desk in the law school atrium. The pass and a currently validated law school ID card must be presented for access and transactions.

Members of the greater Touro community may use the library, except during final exam periods and the reading period preceding final exams. A currently validated Touro College or Touro University ID card must be presented for access and transactions.
