Law Library 101: 1L Study Aids Guide

An introduction to the law library, designed to help new Vanderbilt students succeed in their use of the law library and to succeed in law school study.

This page offers a variety of print and electronically available resources that can be helpful as you prepare for your first year substantive courses. The selected materials are meant to supplement your course readings, not to replace them. Additionally, this is not an exhaustive list of available treatises and study aids. Please search the library catalog for more resources or browse the study aids collection, which is available on the main floor of the law library.

The volumes provided below are just a few examples of commonly used study aids.  Many of the print resources listed below can be found in the electronic databases that the law library subscribes to, which are linked above.  If you have any questions about accessing these resources online, please contact the law library's circulation desk.
