Whether you're looking for a helpful guide for outlining, or want a summary of doctrine and key cases to reinforce your in-class lectures and readings, the W&L Law Library has study aids for your needs.

This guide features study aids for first-year law classes that are available through the Law Library, both online and in our print collection. Also included are past exams from W&L professors, books on how to succeed in law school, and commercial exam prep resources.
