Late Fees at the Law Library

Late fees are assessed when materials are renewed or returned after the due date. Patrons will incur replacement charges if overdue materials are not returned to the Library within a reasonable amount of time after the due date. Fees may also be assessed if items are damaged. Items which are recalled must be returned within two weeks after the notice of recall. Recalled items accrue fines at the rate of $2/day.
