Study Aids in the Law Library

There are many choices when it comes to picking out the right study aid.  They come in different formats and cover materials in different ways.  If you need a general overview of a topic that explains the law, you might use the Nutshell Series or the Concise Hornbooks.  Other series will provide practice questions, such as the Exam Pro Series or Friedman’s Practice Series.  There are even a couple that provide both an overview and practice questions, like Glannon Guides and Examples and Explanations.

Dr. Jarmon, from the Office of Academic Success, has created a handy guide to the various study Aid series that discusses different types of study aids.  This guide is available in the tutor office, located behind the Research and Information desk in the Law Library.  The different series are also available in various formats.
