Check out the study aids available online and in print from the Law Library!

West Academic Study Aids online includes outlines, summaries, hornbooks, Legalines, and ExamPro preparation materials. The LexisNexis Digital Library of Online Study Aids includes the Mastering series, the Questions & Answers series, and the Understanding series. The Aspen Learning Library includes "Examples & Explanations," the "Emanuel Outline" series, and the "Glannon Guide" series, all of which are in e-book format.

Each platform allows access via multiple devices and provides tools for taking notes and testing your knowledge of the subject. To enable notetaking and the saving of results, law community users must register using their university credentials. Some of the same materials in print format may be available on Reserve in the Law Library – please ask at the Circulation Desk.

For additional information on study aids, see our Study Aids Research Guide.

Law students also have access to CALI. CALI is a repository of over 1,000 interactive legal tutorials covering myriad law school topics. See a Reference Librarian for access instructions.

To view a selection of past Iowa Law exams, as well as modules on studying and exam preparation, visit the College of Law’s "Iowa Law Writing & Academic Resources" ICON course.

The Law Library staff wishes you success in your exam preparation and on final exams.
