The Semester Draws to a Close—Can Exams Be Far Behind?

Your Effort and Our Resources Can Lead to Success!

With classes ending this week, students get a few days of using a more flexible schedule to finish preparing for exams. Facing exams can be an anxious time for first-semester 1Ls and experienced law students alike. Please take advantage of the services and resources available to you, such as study groups and the programs offered by Joel Chanvisanuruk, our Assistant Dean for Academic Success and Bar Programs. Also, know that the Law Library offers a wealth of resources to help you prepare for exams. Here is a partial list of them:

  • CALI Lessons: CALI offers more than 1,000 online lessons on nearly every law school subject. They are interactive, self-paced quizzes that teach or reinforce your understanding of the subject. If you haven’t already registered for CALI, you will need the school’s authorization code. Send us an email message and we will reply with the code.
  • Online Study Aids: You have 24/7 access to over 400 study aids on West Academic and over 200 more on Lexis OverDrive. And don’t forget print study aids in the Reference 2 collection on the entrance floor of the library.
  • Use your access to PowerNotes to take notes from and organize outlines with online resources. Find helpful details in the 1L Study Guide! In fact, all levels of our students can find useful information in that guide!
  • If you are organizing hard copy notes and outlines, you’ll find WEPA printers on the library’s second and third floors and helpful tools like staplers and hole punches at the circulation desk.


Feed Your Body As Well As Your Mind

The Marx Law Library is happy to again provide bagels and beverages during exams. Because of university financial reporting requirements, we ask that once during the exam period you print your name on the sheets that will be available at the bagel table. Thank you!
