Reusable Content: Hyder Popular Reading Room

Hyder Popular Reading Room

The Hyder Popular Reading Room gathers many of the most useful law student resources in one easy-to-access location. The room is located in the southeast corner of the second floor of the library. This collection features the most recent editions of our most popular study aids such as  Hornbooks, Concise Hornbooks, Nutshells, the Understanding series, the Concepts & Insights series and the Examples & Explanations  series, as well as titles on law school and career success. UT law school exams are available online. There is also an informative display featuring the most recent issues of the twelve student run journals at UT Law.


Please see our research guides for more information about Study Aids and Past Exams. Study aids circulate only to UT Law students and can be checked out for 3 days. Past exams are library use only. The Hyder Popular Reading Room also provides a quiet study space for individual or group studying.
