As you begin a new semester at TJSL, we would like to remind you about library resources available to you.
Upcoming training sessions
Students who are working on seminar papers this semester may want to sign-up for legal research training. We offer short training sessions in Bluebooking, Basic Legal Research and Plagiarism. If fewer than 5 students sign up for a training session, the session may be canceled. You will be offered a place in the next available training session. Find the Legal Research Training page on TWEN and use the sign-up sheets to sign up for a training session. Email reference librarian Catherine Deane with any questions.
The Library carries many study aids, which are located on the 4th floor. Recent study aids are located in the 4th Floor lobby opposite to the circulation desk. Older editions of study aids may be available in the 4th floor stacks. There are other study aids, including bar review material on reserve. Ask for them at the 4th floor circulation desk.
For more information on Study Aids, see the Study Aids Research Guide.
There are over 40 online research guides available to you, created by the TJSL librarians to help you with research. For example:
- Resources for Law Students networking in San Diego, California
- Legal Movies available at TJSL
- Appellate Advocacy
- Amateur Sports Law
