Study Aids for Law Students
Study aids are a great way to get a better understanding of a legal subject area, or to review for exams. This guide suggests titles for many of the classes offered at the Law School. Not all courses are included, but many are. If you have suggestions for courses or aids to add, please contact Professor Irwin-Smiler.
Academic Success Collection & Nook
The Academic Success Collection and Nook are new additions to the Professional Center Library for Fall 2012. This is dedicated space for you to examine and use the study aids the library owns. You are welcome to check these out for a week at a time - just take them over to the Circulation Desk. The Nook is organized by class, with first year books are on the low bookcases, upper level required classes and electives on the tall bookcases. Within each category, the books are shelved alphabetically by class title or group (i.e., all tax books are under "Taxation", whether that's Estate Tax or Income Tax). If you're looking for an upper level class that relates to a 1L course, check in the 1L section as well. For instance, Products Liability titles are shelves with Torts.
Study Aid Series
Several publishers provide study aids in a variety of formats & series. Students often find a series they like and stick with that throughout their law school career, but don't limit yourself & get boxed in!
