Sometimes you just have to do it. We get it, people have families, work, awkward commutes, all kinds of reasons they just have to drive to school and back. Parking’s a little difficult at the Law School but there are plenty of spots. See the carpool map for where you can park. (L&C enforces a strict ‘no parking on random streets around campus’ policy – so that folks in the neighborhood aren’t overwhelmed by students trying to get around having to pay to park. See here for neighborhood parking enforcement boundaries.
