Yes! It's Tuesday and that means we have another Library Loot puzzle for you! This week, it's a research question to test your legal research skills!

(What are we talking about? Read more about Library Loot here.)

Instructions: For this research question, you need to use your legal research skills to determine the answer. Once you've figured it out, post the answer in the comments section of this blog post. If you are found to be correct, a librarian will contact you by email. Please use your PhoenixLaw student email address so we can verify that you are a current student.

Here you go...

Question:

In the 50 titles (now 51) of the US Code what is the only vacant Title? 

THIS PUZZLE HAS BEEN SOLVED! THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!

See who won here!

3. One prize will be given to the first person to complete the puzzle with the correct answer. Even if  more than one person worked towards getting the correct answer, only one prize will be given for the puzzle completed correctly.

Study Rooms No Longer Need Check Out!

by Sarah Prosory 4. February 2011 16:25

Attention all PSL students!

 The Law Library NO LONGER requires that the library study rooms be checked out or reserved. We will honor all reservations that were made prior to Thursday February 3rd 2011. But no reservations or check outs will be taken from this point forward for the law library study rooms.

Students may use a study room on a first come, first served basis. Groups take priority over individual students.

Students still have the option to reserve rooms in Buildings B & D. Please contact the Circulation Desk for any questions at (602) 682-6897 or by email.

Have a great weekend! Cool
