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.


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.

Exam Bank

Mizzou Law professors may provide copies of their previous exams to help students study. The exam bank can be viewed by professor's name or class. 

Some professors may provide copies of their previous exams by posting them to course management systems such as TWEN, Lexis Webcourses, or Blackboard.

Check with your professor if you have questions about whether past exams will be provided, and where they will be made available.
