New Homes for Old Books
Maybe you're retiring or you're transitioning to a new job -- what will you do with your old law books? The market for used law books is weak, but you shouldn't throw them away. Donate your used law books to another lawyer - maybe a solo or new lawyer - who will appreciate and love the books as you did.
The Bar Book Exchange is a member benefit. To donate your books, send an email with a brief description of what you are donating to Emily Worley at firstname.lastname@example.org. An email will be sent to the members of the Solo and Small Firm Section giving them a first chance at the books. If the books are not claimed, we can place a notice in E-Blast for you for free. In our experience, donated books are claimed quickly. (Please note that we do not accept used law books here at the Bar. This is a referral service only.) If you have questions, e-mail email@example.com.
