Reflections from the Library Director

By Carol Watson

Watson Carol profileYou made it!  Or should I say we made it?  It’s the end of the academic year.

All of us here at the UGA Law Library would like to congratulate our 3L students who are graduating.  It seems like only yesterday that you arrived here as newbies, but your transformation has been dramatic. We are proud of your accomplishments and confident that you are ready to tackle the future.

At the other end of the spectrum, we have enjoyed getting to know the 1Ls more personally as we taught our inaugural legal research course this past year.  Thank you for your patience, attentiveness, and diligence.  You have been an inspiration to us.

2Ls, it’s time for you to become the senior leaders of our school.  We have no doubt that you are prepared and we look forward to hearing the details of your summer experiences and working closely with you in your final year.

LLMs and M.S.L. students…thank you for enriching us.  Your varying perspectives challenge us to test our assumptions and enhance our educational experiences.

As I write this final farewell note, I find myself humming You’ve Got a Friend in Me from Toy Story.  If you haven’t heard it, I encourage you to give it a listen.  In the meantime, remember you’ve got a friend in the Law Library.  t-25792-116
You are always welcome to drop by, call, email, chat, or otherwise reach out to us whether you’re chatting with us about the latest events in your life or you need our assistance with a research question.

We wish everyone a relaxing, successful, and productive summer, no matter what type of endeavor you are pursuing.

Farewell from your friends in the Law Library.
