Study Aids in the Law Library!

Posted by Library Blog on 09/03/2008 at 12:00 AM

In addition to the CALI tutorials, the Law Library’s collection has various study aids on numerous legal subject areas.  These study aids include the nutshells and hornbooks published by Thomson/West.  Other study aids are published by LexisNexis and Aspen Publishers.  LexisNexis publishes the “Understanding...” series and Aspen Publishers publishes the Examples and Explanations series.  Foundation Press, an independent affiliate of Thomson/West, also publishes the Concepts and Insights series on various areas of the law. To view available titles in these series, search the Law Library’s WebCatalog by typing the titles: Examples and Explanations Series, Hornbook Series, Understanding Series, or Nutshell Series.

Current editions of these study aids are available on Reserve.  Copy 1 and Copy 2 of a study aid circulate for two hours and are restricted to use within the Law Library.  Copy 3 and higher can be checked out of the Law Library for forty-eight (48) hours.  Note, a fine of 50 cents is accrued for each hour that a book checked out from Reserve is overdue!  Older editions of the study aids are shelved in the stacks by their call number and can be checked out from the Law Library for twenty-one days.
