Study Aids in the Law Library

The Library maintains a small collection of select study aids, including several popular series. However, there are many other options available, and we encourage students to contact their professors for suggestions on supplementary reading.

In print

We have titles from the Hornbook, Nutshell, and Understanding series, as well as a few E&Es and Q&As. Current editions are behind the service counter, and you can check ANTPAC to see if they’re available. Sample searches:
