Flash cards– they’re not just for multiplication tables and state capitols. They’re also for law school!
Your library has quite a number of Law in a Flash sets available for check out at the circulation desk. Flash your PantherCard and pick up a set for 3 hours. Take them with you to lunch, to the gym, or on a smoke break. Study on your own or play trivia with a group. Every little bit helps as you approach exam time.

Here’s a list of the topics we have for you:

  • Administrative Law
  • Contracts
  • Civil Procedure, part 2
  • Constitutional Law, parts 1 & 2
  • Corporations
  • Criminal Law
  • Criminal Procedure
  • Environmental Law
  • Evidence
  • Federal Income Tax
  • Future Interests
  • Professional Responsibility
  • Real Property
  • Sales and Leases
  • Secured Transactions
  • Torts
  • Wills and Trusts

And for after graduation, we have the Multi-state Bar Exam, but first things first. ;)

Study Aids Available!

Studying for finals? Can’t figure out U.C.C. 2-207? The Law Library is here to help! To help you succeed on your exams we have:

Additional Study Rooms

From October 25th until December 17th, law students will be able to take advantage of 3 new study rooms at the Georgia State University College of Law.  The Career Services Office will be allowing students to use rooms 141, 142, and 143 as study rooms during this time.

Students can check out these rooms at the Career Services Office from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.  After 5pm and on the weekends, students can check out these rooms at the Law Library Circulation Desk.

Resources for Law Student Life

The COL Library recently published a new research guide called “Life as a Law Student.”  The guide focuses on providing law students with resources about life in law school.

Whether you’re a 1L—new to law school—or a 3L looking forward to graduation, this guide includes resources that may be of interest to you.  There are links to books in the library that offer exam preparation advice.  You’ll find links to movies about life as a lawyer, perfect for relaxation after a hard day of classes and studying.  If you have a hard time turning off your technology, the selection of links available for both the iPhone and Android platforms is broad.  The links include both law-related and leisure sources.  Of course, the research guide also includes links to other online resources, including blogs that will keep you up to date on both legal gossip and legal news or provide you with information about life in Atlanta.
