Buying Books

The University of Michigan has partnered with Barnes & Noble College as the preferred provider for textbooks on campus. 

Go to Barnes & Noble College


The Michigan Journal of International Law (MJIL) hosts the BookTrader as a low cost method for students to buy textbooks and study aids. The BookTrader accepts donated books from students throughout the year. The BookTrader is open the first week of class each semester to sell used books and study aids to students, and again several times towards the end of the semester providing the only source of used study aids for law students.

The goal of the BookTrader is to provide an efficient alternative for students to buy used law school materials, while raising money for MJIL.

Students may also drop off unwanted books/study aids in front of the BookTrader (lower level of Hutchins Hall), and in the MJIL office (S-275 in the Law Library).
