New exam study guides on CD

We have heard your requests and based on suggestions from you, we have added over a dozen new "Sum and Substance" exam study guides on CD. You can take these out for 3 days to listen to in your car, at home, or on your laptop in the library (with headphones, of course).

New subjects range from Property, Family Law Wills, Constitutional Law to International Law and Exam skills.

Ask a Reference Librarian for help finding other subjects.

Good luck on exams!!

Night Owl Breakfast

The Night Owl Breakfast is today (Tuesday) starting at 7:30 PM. Not only is the food free this is an opportunity for a fun social event with your fellow law students, law faculty and law administrators. Talk with your professors outside the class room and get to know them as people.

You need to eat and take breaks so there is little excuse not to attend. Hope to see you this evening!

Law Student Risks His Life to Save His Outlines

This is a story that's showing up on a lot of legal blogs (or "blawgs," as they say). An ASU 1L recently beat up a baseball bat-wielding burglar to save his laptop and the notes it contained.

Note to 1L's: One or more friends will probably give you their notes if yours are stolen.
