Need a study aid that can help you in a pinch? Look no further. We’ve got one in mind…
This week we are highlighting the Nutshell series.
What is the “Nutshell” series?
The Nutshell series are compact study aids that provide a succinct, yet thorough overview of a particular area of the law with an emphasis on key cases and statutes.
If you are looking for a quick read during crunch time, Nutshells are great at bringing broad legal topics down to the most basic fundamental principles.
Remember, study aids are used to help you enhance your understanding of concepts taught in the classroom. While your notes and professor’s explanations should always be your primary source of information, study aids can help supplement your understanding and help you test your knowledge. And the Library is here to help you find the right ones for you!
The Library has Nutshell titles available in print!
The newest print editions are available in the Library’s Reserve Collection. To check one of these out, just ask at the Circulation Desk. All reserve copies are available for 2-hour check outs. Older editions, located in the Lower Level stacks, can be checked out for longer. If you would like help finding a copy, or would like to check one out remotely, don’t hesitate to ask! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
