Nervous About Law School? We’re Here to Help!

August 13, 2018

Are you nervous about starting law school? We were, too! That’s why we’ve created this 1L Survival Guide just for you. In it, you’ll find information about the Boley Law Library, including book suggestions for law school success, how to access course materials, writing tips, and more! 

Remember: all of your research law librarians were 1Ls, too. We’ve been in your shoes…we’ve hauled around those casebooks…we’ve faced the Socratic Method…and we’ve drunk copious amounts of caffeine while highlighting in multiple colors. We know firsthand how overwhelming law school can be. Fortunately, you’ve chosen an extremely friendly place to study law - in addition to the research law librarians, you’ll find help from the law school staff, and your professors. And of course, the upper-division students exemplify that you, too, will make it through!

We’re excited to meet you!
