Library Tours

The Maloney Library offers guided tours to guests outside the Fordham Law community upon request. Tours are moderated to minimize disruption to our patrons. Maloney Library tours provide a general introduction to the library’s policies and its physical layout. Tours do not include instruction on using library resources.

Guided tours will be given Monday through Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. as staffing permits. Tours are unavailable during the last six (6) weeks of each semester due to final exams.

Tours for the Fordham Law School Community

Members of the Fordham Law community should contact their Library Liaison for tours and class instruction.

Tours for Prospective or Admitted Fordham Law School Students

Prospective and admitted Fordham Law School students may visit the Maloney Library as part of the Admissions Office’s tour. Any prospective or admitted law student independently touring the campus is welcome to visit the library. Before visiting, such guests should ask the Admissions Office for a Library Tour Invitation.
