Law School Study Aids for Students
To assist law students with their required first-year classes and upper-class electives, the Library has created a list of popular hornbooks, nutshells, and other study aids. The "1L Materials" tab lists material applicable for the subjects that make up the first-year curriculum (i.e., Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Property, Torts, and Legal Research & Writing) and the "Upper-Class Electives" tab lists material applicable to a variety of other subjects.
To make study aids even easier to find, the most current ones are now located in the Hyder Popular Reading Room on the 2nd floor.
Study aids are written for a law student audience. To find a list of treatises providing a more in-depth treatment, please consult Tarlton's Guide to Legal Treatises by Subject.
