Yes, finals are here and I know what you’re thinking, “What can the law library do to help me with finals?” (Just work with me here.) So here’s a short list:
- Study space – We have plenty of places to study in the library. Don’t forget our study rooms on the 3rd floor.
- Longer hours – During finals we are open until 2 AM every night.
- CALI lessons – Have you tried CALI lessons? You should. CALI quizzes you on legal topics. If you need the authorization code, just pick up a card from the reference desk or email me, Janet Lindenmuth.
- Study aids – For your last minute studying needs we have study aids like, Examples and Explanations, Glannon Guides and the Understanding the Law series. Check them out in the study aids room right behind the reference desk.
So visit the library for everything you need to study!
The library is of course a popular place to study for exams. But we have more than just study space. Check out our collection of study aids, located just behind the reference desk area. We have study aids form the Examples and Explanations series, Understanding series, Glannon Guides, Sum and Substance CDs, and more.
And don’t forget about CALI lessons! CALI’s online interactive lessons quiz you on a wide range of legal topics. If you don’t have the CALI authorization code email me Janet Lindenmuth or call the reference desk at 302-477-2114.
If you need to keep on studying after the library has closed for the evening, classrooms 122, 123 and 126 will be available for bar students only until 2 AM from July 3rd through July 18th. You will have to show your Widener ID or a valid driver’s license to use the rooms. The law building will close at 2 AM.
Exam time is almost here! For your studying convenience the law library has extended hours during exams. We will be open from 8 AM to 2 AM every day starting December 5th through December 20th.
For a complete list of hours see our library web page.
CALI has rolled out a new look for the popular CALI lessons. Besides the new look they’ve also added support for mobile devices so you can now run CALI lessons on your iPad or smart phone. They’ve also added an auto save feature so you don’t have to remember to save your lesson progress.
Form more information on the new lessons see CALI’s blog.
Starting this fall CALI lessons will have a new look. The new lessons will also work on iPads, iPhones, and other mobile devices. Right now the mobile lessons are available in a beta version. If you’d like to give them a test run check out CALI’s website for more info.
Also, if you are an incoming first year and would like to try out CALI just email Janet Lindenmuth or stop by the reference desk for the authorization code.
