The Library maintains a research collection of print and electronic resources and provides law faculty with research, instruction, and publication support.
The Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) lessons, multimedia computer exercises designed to enhance class teaching, add an element of interactivity to traditional classroom education. Approximately 300 CALI lessons are available, covering a large topical array. Registration instructions are located on the law school intranet. For further assistance, email their helpline, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty and staff members can receive training and assistance in setting up and maintaining a web-enhanced course.
The Library’s course reserve service makes course materials readily available to students at the Circulation Desk with a two hour checkout period. Faculty members are encouraged to place material on reserve as early before the beginning of the semester as possible. Items will be removed from reserve at the end of the designated semester and all personal materials returned unless other instructions are provided .
Law faculty members frequently release past examinations. In addition to providing an historical record, these documents may be useful to law students who are preparing for their exams. The exam archive is located on the law school intranet.
Exams from the years 1982-2004 are available in print on the lower floor of the Library at call number KF292.U54 A2. The years 1999-2004 are available in both paper and electronic versions and the years 2004-current are exclusively electronic.
Reuse of Essay Examinations
Faculty members may not use a released essay examination question more than once.
The Library will provide topic-specific legal research instruction for law school classes and is happy to meet individually with students to provide one-on-one assistance with their research.
Please advise students to use the librarians! Research demonstrates that when a professor tells their class that the librarians can help them (find a paper topic, create a research plan, locate resources, etc) the number of students who seek assistance increases dramatically, and the final product the student produces improves.
Two weeks advance notice would be appreciated for guest lectures.
