Welcome Law Students

Welcome to your First Year of Law School.  This guide will help you find study aids that are available to law students. Some of the study aids are in-depth treatises and some are brief overviews.   The library subscribes to Lexis Study Aids and West Academic Study Aids and Wolters Kluwer Study Aids and Quimbee.  The services give you online access to study aids on-campus and off-campus. For West Academic Study Aids you will need to use your OU 4x4 off-campus after you click on the link in the guide. If you have trouble accessing any services including Westlaw Edge, Lexis+ or Bloomberg Law, please contact a librarian.  If you wish to use a print version of a study aid, you can ask the person at the Circulation Desk to get the book for you from the Law Reserve Room. The guide is a starting point. You can find the library hours on the Law Library webpage. Floor Maps are below.  During finals the library hours are extended. If you have any suggestions, please email me at and let me know what you think could be added.
