Study Aids and Exam Preparation Resources for First Year Law Students

Law Study Aids

What's In this Guide

This research guide is a selected list of the most current and popular study aids and examination preparation resources available for first year law students in the Rinn Law Library.

A "study aid" is the general term for a subset of legal resources designed to help new and returning law students master specific areas of law  such as civil procedure,  constitutional process,  contracts, criminal law, property and torts.  Most study aids available in the Law Library  are commercially published print resources such as "hornbooks,"  "nutshells" and  canned outlines or checklists.   However, interactive Computer Asisted Legal Instruction (CALI) exercises and podcasts and other online resources are also available.   And of course, selected archived law school exams are available electronically or in hard copy.
