About This Guide

This guide was designed to help students in their first year of law school get to all of the resources they might need to help prepare for exams.  These resources are available in other spots around our website, but this guide should give you easy access to all of them. Use the menu on the left side of the screen or click on a description below. The library provides law students with access to three subscription-based digital libraries containing study aids. For Wolters Kluwer (WK) and West Academic libraries, you can create your own account using the instructions you will find here. These instructions are also located on every page of this guide that contains one of these resources. Our newest subscription, to the Lexis Digital Library does not require you to create an account, and items can be linked to directly from this guide.

  • Outlines: outlining is a method of studying for your final by putting all of the content from the class into one document. This page contains links to information on how to create an outline, as well as sample outlines from former students and commercially prepared outlines.
  • Quiz Yourself: practice your test taking skills by using the books on this page, which contain either multiple choice questions and answers or sample answers to essay questions.
  • Study Aids: these aids were designed to help you understand concepts that are still fuzzy after you've gone over them in class (there are lots of them, so, clearly, you're not the only one lookin for deeper understanding).
  • Stress Relief: Studying for finals can be stressful. Don't forget to take breaks! This page provides links to puzzles, zoo cams, puppy videos, and five-minute stretch videos.
  • Advice: these books were written with general exam-taking advice you may find useful.
  • Past Exams: want to know what a Con Law exam looks like? Use this page to look at past exams given by CU Law professors (maybe even yours!).
  • Guidelines for Using the Library: the library is open to law students and has lots of great study spaces for your use. Learn how to reserve a space or check out a book during Covid using this guide.
  • Ask a Librarian: having trouble accessing something? Librarians are happy to help.



The library is here to serve all your finals-prep needs!
