    UCI law students can bring one guest to the Law Library. Guests must:

    • Exchange a valid form of identification for a guest pass.
    • Display the guest pass so that Law Library staff can see it.
    • Be accompanied by a UCI law student at all times.

    Guest passes are not available during exams—check the calendar for details: Library › About › Hours.
