West Academic Study Aids

The Tarlton Law Library is providing temporary access for the UT Law community to the West Academic Study Aids Collection for the 2020-2021 academic year.  We hope that you will find this resource helpful as you start to prepare for the exam period.  The West Academic Study Aids Collection provides unlimited digital access to hundreds of trusted study aids covering virtually every law school course. You will find case briefs, outlines, overviews, nutshells, hornbooks, and exam prep titles – including audio, video, and new interactive practice questions – all available online, anytime.

The link for the study aids collection will take you directly into the resources.  There are additional features of the collection that are available if you create a West Academic account, including adding your own notes and comments and using materials off-line.  Just click “Create an Account” on the top right corner of the page.
