Convenient Access to Popular Study Aids Online and In Print

Study aids can be in high demand at this time of year. With the range of online subscription study aids available to you through the Law Library, you have convenient access when you prefer to study and without concern about whether someone has a popular resource checked out. From interactive lessons in CALI to video lessons and quizzes in Quimbee to multiple series of study aids in the LexisNexis Digital Library, these resources can supplement your study process. You continue to have access to a range of study aids in print, too. Ask for current editions at the Circulation Desk during Law Library service hours. Examples & Explanations (print), Q&A (LexisNexis Digital Library and print), CALI, and Quimbee can be great sources of hypotheticals.

For additional information, visit Study Guides for 1Ls or Study Guides for 2L/3L Courses. If you don’t remember your LexisNexis Digital Library PIN, send a message to Prof. Olson at elana.olson@marquette.edu. Still haven’t created a Quimbee account? Use your @marquette.edu email address to complete the form at https://www.quimbee.com/users/organization_sign_up. Need an authorization code to create a CALI account or have questions about any of these resources? Contact us at the Reference Desk!
