More on Preparing for Exams

The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) has posted several podcasts on preparing for and writing law school exams.

Six professors provide advice on Exam Preparation. Scott Burnham (U of Montana) offers Tips for Multiple Choice Exams in Law School. And Jennifer Martin (Western New England) describes Top Ten Tips for Successfully Writing a Law School Essay.

Seeking New Flavor Ideas for Library Lifesavers

The reference cooks are sifting through recipes for next quarter’s Library Lifesaver offerings. We want to know what you—our customers—would like to see on the menu.

Over the last three months, we have treated you to tasty tidbits of information on the Library catalog, selected legal research databases, Google, Word, exams, finding paper topics, and CALI. These are some of the treats that we wanted to share with you.

Now it is your turn! What would you like? Design your own menu.

Perhaps you would like to order some comfort food (a review of Lexis or Westlaw basics) or an exotic delicacy (English language translations of foreign cases). Request an appetizer (an introduction to an interdisciplinary database) or a seven-course meal (a series of short sessions exploring one topic in depth).

We are here to slake your thirst for knowledge! Send your suggestions to lawrefst@u.

Undergrads on L1

The study tables on the south side of L1 and the carrels on the west end of L1 are reserved for law students all (tables) or part of the time (carrels).

If you observe nonlaw students in these areas, please notify the Reference librarian or Circulation staff. We will walk through the area and ask nonlaw students and others to move to other tables or carrels.

Law students may also enforce the policy. When you notice an undergrad at an L1 table or carrel, courteously point out the sign and ask the student to move to another area.
