Alert: Do not purchase textbooks prior to receiving your section assignment. Section assignment affects textbook purchases.

  • After the 1L Section Release Party on Monday, July 25, 2022, you should order your textbooks, new or used, from the vendor of your choice.
  • Click "Course Textbooks" for each course listed below to see required and optional textbooks listed at the Washburn University bookstore website.
  • The Washburn Student Bar Association (WSBA) facilitates a Book Exchange through Facebook (see WSBA Member Book Exchange). Many second year law students have books that are being re-used again this year and are willing to sell them at a reasonable price, often lower than the WU bookstore, Amazon, or other sources.
