Study aids in the Law Library

August 29th, 2012 No comments

The library has a great collection of study aids located in the room right behind the reference desk. Study aids can be checked out for 3 days. Please return them on time as your fellow students will be waiting for them!

Some of the most popular study aids we have are the Examples and Explanations series and the Understanding series.

A new study guide series we started buying a few years ago that proved popular with students is the Glannon Guide series.  Glannon Guides contain sample multiple choice questions with explanations of why each answer choice is right or wrong.
