Westlaw's Law School Survival Guide Includes New Resources

New Tips and Resources for Law Students

Via Westlaw you may access Law School Survival Guide, which provides tips and resources for law students, especially 1Ls. Many offerings from Quimbee, a study aid service, are now interspersed throughout the Guide. These additions are great for students beginning law school and can help them learn the basics of preparing for class and the start of their legal career.
