Study Aids

Study Aids

If you’ve never used online study aids before, our Study Aids guide offers instructions. Both our West Academic and Lexis Digital Library online databases have good copyright resources. You can locate them by searching or browsing by subject. For the latest editions, you should check the databases but a few examples include: 

Copyright Law in a Nutshell, by Mary LaFrance (West 2017). It's also available at the circulation desk

Questions & Answers: Copyright Law, by Dave Fagundes, Robert C. Lind (Lexis 2018). Also available at the circulation desk

The library also maintains print versions of the Nutshell, Examples & Explanations, Questions & Answers, the Understanding Series, and more. Many students find the Examples & Explanation series helpful for exam prep, especially for essay and short answer exams. This series is not available in any of our online databases. You can inquire at the Circulation Desk for more information on this and other series we maintain in print.

CALI Lessons

The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) offers helpful lessons on a range of subjects. Here is a link to their copyright materials. Enrolled students can stop by the reference office or email lawref@gmu.edu for access to CALI.
