Reserving a space in MacMillan

MacMillan Law Library is a beautiful space to work and study.  With 4 floors, 120 carrels, 450 seats, and spaces that range from light noise and traffic to silent study, there's a space to accomodate every study style here.

The MacMillan Law Library has ten study rooms for students to use for uninterrupted study time, either alone or in a group. These rooms are for Law Students only, and can now be reserved online!  

How it works:

  • Students may request up to 2 hours per day. Hours may be consecutive or not, in the same room or not, but only 2 hours per 24 hour period.
  • Students may request rooms for up to 3 days in advance, but no further out than that. 


The Law Library does not provide designated space or other resources for religious practices or observances; doing so would divert increasingly scarce library resources in an unsustainable way. MacMillan Law Library’s primary mission is to support the academic endeavors of the Law School. Recognizing that student well-being encompasses far more than merely academic support, we have compiled a list of services, resources or other amenities that Emory University offer to support students’ spiritual lives.

The Emory University Student Counseling Center provides free, confidential services for enrolled undergraduate, graduate and professional students at Emory University.  These services include:

  • Counseling (individual, couple, group)
  • Psychiatric services for medication management
  • Stress management and relaxation training

As a diverse religious community, Emory University offers a wide range of resources to support students’ spiritual lives. The Office of the Dean of the Chapel and Religious Life has two locations, at Cannon Chapel and the Dobbs University Center. The office offers the following services/resources:

  • Chaplaincy services
  • Campus ministry groups for many religious traditions (Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim)
  • Safe space for prayer (at the Dobbs University Center and Cannon Chapel)
  • Space for worship (Cannon Chapel)                                                  
  • Inter-religious council  (students promoting inter-religious dialogue and understanding)

For more information about the religious life at Emory and resources available to students, visit the Office of the Dean of the Chapel and Religious Life at

In addition to university-wide resources, Emory School of Law provides additional student support through the Office of Student Affairs, headed by Dean Katherine Brokaw. The office serves as a liaison between law students and law faculty and administration. In addition, it provides the following services:

  • Support for student organizations
  • Assistance with student disability accommodations, including exams
  • Referrals to university resources
  • Study Smarter series to enhance study skills

ELS staff reservations for library space must be requested at least 48 hours in advance. To ensure that space is availble at your desired date/time, please submit space requests as soon as you know you will need the space. Requests may be denied based on availbility of library space at the time you have requested. Library space is not available for use as classroom space.

The library has 2 rooms (M501 and M110) available for staff use 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday which can be reserved via 25Live. All other room availability may be viewed and requested by visiting our reservation form; to request these spaces for uses that directly benefit students (exam accommodations, on-campus interviews) staff may email us.
