Study Aids for Law Students

Library resources for law students to help prepare for class and exams.


In addition to giving out awards for academic excellence, CALI is also a database containing hundreds of lessons, tutorials, and quizzes on law school topics.

Lessons are arranged by topic, subject outline (smaller topics within a large subject), and casebook.

You have to register for a CALI account. Registration information was in your orientation materials when you first started at UW Law. If you've lost those materials, just visit us in person or ask us by email for a new registration code.
