Orlando, Fla. – Students at the Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law will no longer have to order books from an outside company when classes resume for the spring 2009 semester. Beginning Friday, January 9, 2009, the FAMU College of Law's Bookstore will be open for business at a permanent location at the law school campus in Orlando.
“The FAMU Law Bookstore is a wonderful addition to our expanding facility,” said FAMU’s College of Law Dean LeRoy Pernell. “Along with the new FAMU Café, students will have the increased convenience to accomplish tasks that had traditionally taken away from their time studying the law.”
The store is operated by Barnes & Noble Booksellers, and features an array of law textbooks required for the upcoming class session. Patrons will also find a variety of pens, pencils, composition material, computer peripherals, blank CDs and DVDs, as well as licensed FAMU College of Law paraphernalia including umbrellas, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies.
The FAMU College of Law's Bookstore will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, and closed during the weekend and holidays. To accommodate evening students, the hours will be extended to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays. The bookstore is located next to the dedicated skills area near the legal clinic, and can be accessed from the north parking lot. Although the official opening is January 9, 2009, the store is currently open for purchases.
