Study Aids

Access eBook and print copies of a wide variety of study aids covering all 1L and most 2L & 3L courses. Bear in mind that study aids are a supplement, and not a substitute for your own notes/outlines and advice provided by your course instructors. You can access eBook titles for many popular study aid series from these three major publishers:

West Academic Study Aids, includes Hornbooks, Concepts & Insights, Nutshell, and many other series.

Aspen Learning Library, includes Examples & Explanations, Emmanuel Crunchtime, Emmanuel Law Outlines, and Glannon Guides, and other series.

LexisNexis Digital Library/Carolina Academic Press, includes the Understanding, Mastering, and the Question & Answers series.

CALI Lessons

CALI has over 1,000 online, interactive tutorials covering narrow topics of law for a wide range of 1L and 2L-3L courses, including a tutorial on how to prepare for exams. To access CALI tutorials, you first need to register with an Authorization Code that you can get from the Law Library Reference Office (625-4309 or law-ref@umn.edu).

Sample Exams & Model Answers

Are there sample exams and/or model answers available for my courses? 

First, check your course Canvas site or check with your professor to see if they will be making them available.

Some faculty members will grant permission and provide copies of sample/past exams for the Law Library to place in binders for students to access. These binders are available at the Circulation desk for you to make print or digital copies using the photocopier/scanner in the law library lobby. Please be courteous and use only one binder at a time, and do not remove binders from the circulation desk area.
