Law Library Study Skills Collection

In an effort to make it easier and more efficient to find books that will help you succeed in law school, the Ross-Blakley Law Library staff has created a Study Skills Collection. Located in the Reserve Reading room on the first floor of the Law Library, the collection brings together an array of study aids, legal research and writing texts, exam and Bar exam materials. Materials in the collection include:

  • Hornbooks and Nutshells (Some current non-circulating copies are on Reserve at the Circulation Desk)
  • Legal Research Materials
  • Books on Legal Writing
  • Guides on preparing for and writing law school exams
  • Bar exam preparation materials

All the materials in the Study Skills Collection may be checked out for two weeks and are renewable twice. If you have any questions about or suggestions for the collection, please contact Leslie A. Pardo, Head of Access Services, (480) 965-3579.
