Return overdue Law Library books to the Circulation Desk before 5pm on Friday, April 18, to receive forgiveness for any fines owed, no questions asked.

Please note the following:

  • Amnesty applies only to Law Library books. We cannot waive fines for other libraries.
  • Fines that have already posted to your bursar account are not subject to forgiveness under this program.
  • Only overdue/late fines will be cleared, not charges associated with lost, damaged, or otherwise missing items. However, if you still have an item for which you have been billed, bring it back to the library and all charges will be waived.
  • Fines that have been paid in the past are not subject to refund.
