Last Updated: May 9, 2016 URL: Print Guide RSS Updates

Law School Success Print Page


The purpose of this library guide is to provide our Law Students with a list of the resources available in our library that can be referred to for explanation and clarification of the ideas and concepts that they will be learning in their first year of law school.  This guide does not list every resource available in our library, but it lists the most current and  authoritative. 

The location of the item in our library is listed in the item description after the call number.  Items located in the Reserve Room can be requested at the Circulation Desk.  You can ask a librarian for assistance in locating an item in our main collection or if you would like to find a resource not listed in this guide.   

This guide is broken down into the required 1L courses at Touro Law Center:  Legal Process, Civil Procedure, Contracts, Torts, Criminal Law and Property.

All of the subjects, with the exception of Legal Process, are broken down into 2 sections:  Treatises & Hornbooks and Study Aids.  Treatises and Hornbooks give a more comprehensive, detailed explanation of legal concepts, whereas Study Aids, while still explanatory, provide a summary of the legal concepts, as well as outlines for study, and practice questions and answers for review of the concepts.

Legal Process is broken down into Legal Writing, Legal Research & Reference and Legal Citation.
