Resources for First Year Law Students


Hornbooks provide basic rules and principles in a particular area of the law.  There are hornbooks in many of the subject areas covered by first year courses. Most of the current hornbooks have been placed on reserve.  A good example would be Constitutional Law by John E. Nowak and Ronald D. Rotunda.  (SLU Law Reserve KF 4550 / .N6/2010).  Hornbooks can be found on Reserve, previous editions in the stacks.
