A pleasant and productive environment for study and research requires that each library user follow the Ross-Blakley Law Library Conduct Policy and refrain from the activities listed below:
All users must comply with federal, state and local laws. The library will actively pursue disciplinary action, prosecution, or other legal action for the offenses listed above. Misuse of the library whether by theft, mutilation, or vandalism of library materials or property, or by interference with study and research activities of library users, shows disrespect for the institution and disregard of the rights of members of the University and College of Law community. Misuse of the library is a violation of Section 5-303, Prohibited Conduct (R7-4-102) of the Arizona Board of Regents Code of Conduct (BOR 5/83,9/83). The Ross-Blakley Law Library Conduct Policy is based upon the Code.
Persons who commit or attempt to commit offenses stated in the Code of Conduct and the Library Code of Conduct Policy, whether a member of the University Community or not, may be asked to leave the library or the campus, may be subject to the sanctions of expulsion, suspension, prosecution, forfeiture, warning, and restitution, and may be accountable to both civil authorities (city, state, or federal) and to the University.
