There are a wide variety of study aids designed especially for law students. While the law library does not obtain copies of all law school study aids, many of the most popular titles are available.
Students often develop their own preferences for specific study aids based on what works best for them. Your professors may also recommend or even require specific study aids in the course syllabus or may have specific titles placed on Course Reserve in the law library.
The law library provides access to online study aids. More information about accessing this resource is available elsewhere in this guide.
For print, the most recent edition of a specific title will be kept on reserve and circulate for 4 hours. Older editions are usually available in the general collection and will circulate for the normal loan period.
