The law library has a number of study rooms available for students to squirrel up in. They are tucked behind the stacks, separated from the main studying area on the 5th floor. You have to weave your way down two flights of stairs and past the rows of books to get to them. The rooms are small and sparse. Inside you will find only a table, white walls, and the odd pipe snaking up onto the ceiling.
You might guess... I love these study rooms. They remind me of the closet-sized practice rooms that must be tucked all over the place at music schools, or the empty rehearsal spaces that actors use to run lines and work out blocking. A place to get lost in. And after you spend a long time inside, working something out, there is a great feeling you of opening up the door and stepping out. A feeling of emerging.
