3/19/2020 - Regent University Law Library, like so many other libraries across the country, has been working with publishers to facilitate access to casebooks and textbooks for students who no longer have access to a physical copy. The process varies by publisher. Please take note of the information below. You will need to reach out directly to the vendor/publisher to arrange access, but feel free to contact Professor Hamm firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need additional assistance. Professors are posting required readings in Blackboard during the transition to online (1-2 weeks), but you will need to take steps to secure textbook access for the remainder of the semester.
