Study Guide for 1L Courses: Law School Success



This guide is intended to help you find the resources you need to succeed in law school. Here you will find a list of books and other e-resources on 1L subjects and topics such as legal writing and studying for exams. This guide does not list every resource available in our library, but instead lists the most current and authoritative.  All items are listed with their call numbers or online locations. 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.   

You will find a variety of different types of resources here. Treatises and Hornbooks give a more comprehensive, detailed explanation of legal concepts, whereas Study Aids, will provide briefer explanations along with outlines for study and practice questions and answers.
