A compilation of the study aids available to MU law students in the Reserve Room and elsewhere in the law library's collection. Includes brief descriptions, call numbers, and subject.

Introduction

This guide is designed to help students at MU Law locate useful supplemental study resources for law school courses. Resources are available for all substantive courses. The materials include electronic resources, books, audio CDs, and flashcards.  Use the drop down menus under the tabs to locate particular types of study aids. 

Please remember that supplemental materials are meant to enhance, not replace, the assigned classroom material. Your professor can advise you on supplements that may be particularly useful aids in exam preparation.
