Final Exam Preparations

Classes are almost over and preparations for final exams has begun. During your preparations, don’t forget about the library’s many resources, including past exams and study aids.
Some Professors post their past exams on TLCWEB. To find out whether your Professor has posted past exams, log in to TLCWEB, then choose Library from the green bars on the left & then click Past Exams. You can search for exams by Professor or Course Name (or both).
We also have many study aids available in our Reserve Room. Consult our Study Guide for 1L Courses to find study aids for Legal Process, Civil Procedure, Contracts, Torts, Criminal Law and Property, as well as to view the types of study aids we have available, including: Q & As; Emanuels; Gilberts; Acing Series; Siegels & many more. And don’t forget about West Study Aids.  Just sign in to your Westlaw account & click on West Study Aids Subscription (in the middle of the page under Legal Research & Tools), to find your favorite study aids in eBook format.
Remember that during this final exam prep period, the library is open as a quiet study hall 24/6+.
Good luck on your exams!
