The Office of Academic Excellence maintains a physical resource library that includes a variety of study aids, legal research and writing books, and books on outlining, exam taking, legal analysis, and other critical skills. Students are welcome to stop by the Office of Academic Excellence to review these resources. Many of the resources may be checked out for one or two days. We encourage students to use study aids only to supplement their own work.
