Commercial Outlines

The law library does not carry many commercial outlines, but most can be purchased online.

Tip: To check if the library owns a commercial outline you're looking for, search the catalog for Emanual Outlines and Gilbert Law Summaries.

Student-Created Outlines

Study Aids

While these publications provide less detail than hornbooks, study aids can be a valuable introduction to an unfamiliar area of the law. The library has a number of study aids on reserve, while older editions are available in the stacks. Below is a sample of the study aids we have available for checkout; use the catalog to search by title or keyword to find others. 

Tip: Search for "Nutshell," "Examples and Explanations Series," "Understanding Series," and "Mastering Series."
