Access to Library

A little follow-up to the earlier post. During the summer there are often students from other law schools taking bar prep/review classes at Hofstra. During the time the class is given, these students will have access to the Library. Just bring your ID showing you are attending a bar prep/review class at Hofstra to the Circulation Desk and you will be given access to the Library.

To see our general access policy, just go to And good luck on the Bar!

While we are on a historical bent, for any of you Constitutional history buffs in the blogosphere, check out James Madison's Papers at
At this site, you can find digital images of his correspondence, personal notes and drafts of legislation.

James Madison came to be know as the "Father of the Constitution". He kept a daily record of the Constitutional Convention which has come to be known as Madison's Notes of Debates in the Federal Convention of 1787, and is considered an important source of legislative history for the Constitution.

Einstein Year

Einstein Year marks the centenary of the three papers that Albert Einstein published in 1905, which included the paper on photoelectric effect that led to his Nobel Prize in Physics, as well as the publication of the equasion E=mc2. To mark Einstein Year, the online magazine Spiked has conducted a survey of over 250 renowned scientists, science communicators, and educators, including 11 Nobel laureates. Each was asked: if you could pick just one thing, what would you teach the world about science... and why? Click HERE to read their responses, as well as watch a few video clips.
