Study aids (sometimes referred to as study guides or supplements) are created to help students in a variety of ways, including:
The Taggart Law Library carries titles in the following series to help with understanding content in specific subject areas (e.g., torts, constitutional law, etc,). To see all the titles we carry in a particular series, click on the links below. You can also search for a particular title by doing a keyword search using the subject and series you are looking for (e.g. "torts AND nutshell”).
While these publications provide less detail than treatises and casebooks, study aids can be a valuable introduction to an unfamiliar area of the law. The library has a few study aids on reserve, while older editions are available in the stacks. Below is a sample of the study aids we have available for checkout; use the catalog to search by title or keyword to find others.
The Law Library is a member of CALI (The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction), a non-profit consortium. CALI provides member schools with FREE access to over 900 interactive lessons on a wide variety of law school course topics. These lessons are a great way to supplement your course readings and test yourself on comprehension of course material. Access to these lessons requires registration at the CALI website--www.cali.org. Please see a librarian for the ONU authorization code for CALI.
