Law School Study Aids for Students

Study aids, such as hornbooks and nutshells, are written for law students. This guide is to assist law students in finding what study aids are in Tarlton's collection. The "1L Materials" tab lists material for the subjects that make up the first-year curriculum and the "Upper-Class Electives" tabs list material for a variety of other subjects.

To make study aids even easier to find, the most current ones are located in the Hyder Popular Reading Room on the 2nd floor.

To find a list of treatises providing a more in-depth treatment, please consult Tarlton's Guide to Legal Treatises by Subject.
