The Moakley Law Librarians created a study aids finding guide to highlight key resources that can help you prep for exams. Research guides, finding guides and treatises are a good way to begin your research when you are studying or writing a paper in an area of law that's new to you. Use this research guide to learn about and access study guides, both in print and online, to help you study for exams, as well as to provide general guidance in your understanding of legal concepts. They're arranged by class at the tab level. Each tab contains aids broken down by type.
Note that your primary source of information in preparing for midterms and finals should be your casebook and your notes from class lectures. Further, if your professor recommends a particular study aid, consult that one before any others. That said, try out different study aids and see what suits your method of studying best; what may work for others may not work for you. Be flexible.
Our West Academic Study Aids online collection includes hornbooks, Nutshells, and audio lectures through Sum and Substance! We encourage the use of CALI exercises in preparation for exams.
CALI: More than 1,000 online interactive lessons in over forty subject areas – including all 1L courses. They’re a great way to review for class and prep for exams. Sign up at www.cali.org. Visit or email the Research Desk for an access code.
PAST EXAMS: Some Suffolk Law professors post copies of exam questions from previous years in this database. Use these exams to practice test-taking and gauge your knowledge of the subject. Check out our library services page for more details.
