University of Minnesota Law School Bookstore

Dear First Year Law Students,

On behalf of the U of M Bookstore, welcome to the University of Minnesota Law School. We want to make textbooks the least of your worries, so please fill out the attached Textbook Reservation Form and return it to the Bookstore. The Bookstore staff will pull your books, charge them to your (credit card or student account ) and have them waiting for you to pick up during orientation. Books will be charged to your account the week of August 20th. Cost per student for books averages $860-$990 , depending upon you instructors. Remember, you must wait until you have your letter section assigned by the Law School before you attempt to buy books. Disregard the numerical sections initially assigned by the University of Minnesota.

Also please keep in mind that you will be using the same books through the end of Spring 2013, except for two additional classes which start Spring Semester. The cost for your Spring 2013 Semester books will be considerably less than this semester.

Of course you may always come into the store and buy your books directly from the shelves, or online at after you are officially enrolled in classes and know your letter section and/or instructor. Also, don't miss the Study Aid Room in the Law Bookstore.

Our bookstore is located on the sub-plaza level of the Mondale Law Center. We will be open 8:30-5:00 beginning Monday, August 27th. We also have a great selection of the U of M Law School insignia clothing, gifts, and supplies. See our website at

We are looking forward to a great year with you at the University of Minnesota Law School and hope to see you in our store!
