Attention all incoming 1L's! We have a workshop especially for you! (And any other students who wish to brush up on study skills!) The Law Library wants you to be successful, so we've created a new workshop...Tips & Tricks for Success!
This 30 minute workshop will introduce you to searching effectively with the Law Library's catalog, and show you how to register and use AudioCaseFiles (listen to your cases!!) and CALI (online quizzes to help with your studies!).
A librarian will be available to help you with any other questions you may have (help with Westlaw or Lexis perhaps?) following the workshop.
Join us (click on the dates to RSVP):
An RSVP is helpful but not required. We hope to see you there!!
As always, if you have any questions feel free to contact us by email or (602) 682-6898! For upcoming workshops this semester visit www.phoenixlaw.edu/libraryworkshops and www.phoenixlaw.edu/librarycalendar.
Good luck with your classes!

When you don't have a law library that subscribes to Westlaw, LexisNexis, or other databases, Google Scholar is on the path towards being your friend in these times of need.
Read all about Google Scholar's Advanced Search improvement (from Legal Blog Watch).

Have an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch? Want to stay aware of breaking legal news and the latest in specific legal areas? Rather than have multiple apps provide the legal news, this app has it all in one. Now available in the iTunes store is the LexisNexis Legal News app. The app is free but the subscription is $75 for 3 months or $275 for 12 months.
Now if they only had an Android app... Hat tip to ResourceShelf!
What other legal apps do you use on your iPad or smartphones? Share in the comments below!
