Study Aids are materials, written by leading scholars, that help explain the law and reinforce your learning. The Law Library provides access to both print and electronic study aids. You will learn more about study aids, including the location of the ones in print, during orientation. The electronic study aids provided by the Law Library include CALI, West Academic, and Wolters Kluwer publications.
Many of the study aids available via electronic options like West Academic and Wolters Kluwer are also available in print. Check the Law Library catalog to see if we have print versions available. (More about the catalog on this page of the LibGuide.)
For help finding a study aid on a particular topic, check out our Study Aid Finder.
