More importantly, the new Reference Room is home to the recently compiled Student Study Aids Collection. This collection includes Nutshells, Hornbooks (legal treatises written for students), and the Understanding Series, among other useful study aids. The collection does not include outlines, but if you are looking for a very basic source, refer to a Nutshell. The study guides cover nearly all law school topics, including black letter subjects (contracts, torts, property, evidence, etc.) and specialty topics (such as administrative law, civil rights law, copyright law, and employment discrimination law). If you’re looking for something that’s not in the collection, please let us know, and we’ll look into purchasing it.
We hope you enjoy the new space (it has some of best access to natural light in the Library along with lots of comfortable chairs).
