Library Resources for Bar Exam Prep

For many law graduates, studying for the July bar exam has commenced.  We want to remind you that the Law Library is open to ASU law graduates studying for the bar and that there are a number of bar preparation materials in the Library collection that may be helpful to you in the coming months:

Be sure to also consult the resources in the Study Skills Collection, which include books on bar exam subjects and best practices for bar preparation:

  • Emanuel’s Law Outlines: Secured Transactions (2011)
    Another new book in the Law Library, Emanuel’s Secured Transactions outline provides a comprehensive breakdown of the topic into outline format with both summary and detailed versions of the main issues within secured transactions.

Research Resources for Summer Employment

The final exam period comes to a close tomorrow, and many of you will soon be starting summer jobs.  The Law Library has compiled a Resources for Summer Associates guide to help you successfully navigate your summer employment.    The guide details how you can continue to use both your Bloomberg Law and LexisAdvance accounts this summer, even when working in a commercial setting or studying for the bar exam.   The guide also offers information on a number of topical research guides from the Law Library and a variety of legal resources that might be useful to you in your summer employment.

Finally, remember that anytime you have a question over the summer about any aspect of legal research you can ask a librarian!  Librarians will be available 8:30am-5pm, Monday-Friday, all summer and are happy to help you navigate any research project.  You can come by the reference office, call us at (480)965-6144, e-mail a question, or make an individual appointment with a librarian.
