Starting Law School--A Little Help

For 1L's in the midst of orientation and first class assignments, LexisNexis has posted some straightforward background information on the American legal system with common terms and concepts used in studying cases. Take a look at Introduction to the American Legal System, which might be a useful brief guide as you begin your legal studies. The book from which this excerpt is taken, and many other books on the American legal system and legal research, can be found in the Law Library's collection.

We've also compiled, and posted to Research/Research Guides section of the Law Library web site, a list of Study Guides available in the Library, arranged by subject and series. Be sure to stop by the Reference Desk with any questions you may have!

From 1922 to 1939, James Joyce wrote this unique extraordinary book, novel? Some critics have claimed it is unclassifiable, it is neither an essay nor a novel or, even, it is the result of an insane mind. The truth, it is that James Joyce broke with all of the previous novelistic rules making a different writing, one which joints the discoveries of avant-garde movements and goes far away.
