“Driverless Car Law”: Another New Legal Field?

As we noted last week in our post about “drone law”, advancing technology presents both new challenges and new opportunities for lawmakers and attorneys. Another such challenging field may be in the area of vehicular laws and driverless automobiles. Read a brief article on the latter topic here.

Finding Study Guides

In addition to CALI lessons online, you can find some great study guides and study aids--such as the Examples & Explanations series, flash cards, CD's, and more--at the Law Library.  Many of the Library's study aids are kept on reserve at the Circulation Desk and circulate for 3-hour periods; others are found in the main stacks.  Finding the right study aid for a 1L or advanced course is easy with "Study Guides," one of the research guides on the Library website.  The "Study Guides" research guide organizes these resources by both subject and series, including some online and media series.  Print copies of "Study Guides" are kept at the Reference Desk handout rack for students' convenience.
