The Law Library subscribes to electronic resources that offer both audio and video study aids and skill-improvement options.

The Law Library’s West Academic Study Aid subscription includes two audio series: Sum and Substance Audio and Law School Legends Audio Series. Both collections cover a wide range of course topics, from Law School Legends Audio on Administrative Law to Sum and Substance on Wills and Trusts. In addition to listening to the audio files online, by registering for an individual account, you have the option of selecting titles for offline listening through West Academic’s mobile or desktop apps.

The Law Library also subscribes to LexisNexis Courtroom Cast. This database is a collection of courtroom and case recordings, as well as training videos, for use by law students and faculty in a variety of educational settings. Courtroom Cast consists of three collections: AudioCaseFiles, a video collection, and a training collection. AudioCaseFiles provides recordings and full text of cases included in many first- and second-year courses and casebooks. The video collection contains selected full hearings, trials, and oral arguments from cases in U.S. federal and state courts from 2004 to the present. The training collection is designed to help users hone their advocacy skills through carefully selected video clips from actual trials.
