Guide for New Lawyers

Starting a Firm, Going Solo, or Getting a Job



This guide introduces resources to jump-start your career in law. You will find information on starting your own law practice, getting a job, what it's like to work in a law firm, and how to find success as a lawyer. If you are no longer a current Touro Law Student, you cannot check out books; however, you are more than welcome to read in-house.

The library has two state-of-the-art computer labs and a wireless network. A team of professional librarians are available to assist you with locating resources. If you are no longer a student, email any documents to yourself to print them at home.

Be sure to check our Access Policies and library Hours before your visit.

Keep in mind, the Suffolk County Supreme Court Library, directly across from Touro Law Center, offers legal resources to the public. Bar Associations, like the NYCBA, also offer legal research resources.
