Study Aids for Law Students

Library resources for law students to help prepare for class and exams.

Check Out a Study Aid

The Law Library has a number of different types of commercial outlines, brief books, and hornbooks for you to use to prepare for exams.

Check out: The most recent editions are in the Reference Area and can be checked out for 4 hours. Older editions (which are sometimes only a couple of years old) are in the Classified Stacks and can be checked out for weeks (usually 12 weeks for law students).

There are different kinds of study aids we collect (by different legal publishers) on a number of different common law school subjects.

Due to the pandemic, library materials can only be checked-out via UW Libraries No Contact Curbside Pick-up Service. Please see their webpage for more details. During this time, reference materials are available for one-week check-out periods for the UW Law Community.
