Teaching Resources

Classroom Instruction

The Reference Librarians are available to provide library instruction to your students. Librarians can provide an overview of legal resources or provide instruction on specific areas of law. Librarians are also available to provide instruction in the effective and efficient use of Lexis, Westlaw, Bloomberg Law, and a multitude of other research databases including those outside the realm of law. Please contact Tara Mospan to schedule a presentation for your class.

Course Reserves

Books and other library materials may be placed on Course Reserve for use by students in your classes. Physical Course Reserves are located at the Circulation Desk and may be checked out by students for 2 or 4 hours. Electronic reserves may be linked to your course site through Canvas or accessed through ASU Library Reading Lists

To place personal copies on Course Reserve, bring the items to the Circulation Desk on the third floor. To place library material on reserve, or for questions about Course Reserves, contact Carrie Henteleff.    

Past Exams

The Law Library maintains a Past Exams database for use by law students. Releasable exams and sample answers are available online for the past 10 years. The database is accessible only by Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law students, faculty, and staff. Older exams are available in hard copy at the Circulation Desk on the third floor. 

To release your exams for inclusion in the database, please contact Tammy Vavra. For questions concerning the Past Exams database, please contact Carrie Henteleff.

Research Guides and Seminar Guides

Reference Librarians develop research guides on a wide variety of legal topics, with special emphasis on Law Library resources available to College of Law students. Our research guides in the areas of Law & Science, Indian Law, and International Law are especially helpful for classroom support. 

We also tailor course-specific guides for all classes through which students can complete the Flexible Writing Requirement or Graduation Writing Requirement. These seminar guides can be found on the Topical Seminar Research Guides page as well as in the subject-specific guides listed on the main research guides page.

Textbook Review Copies

Most legal publishers will provide you with review copies of course textbooks at no cost. The Law Library has prepared a guide for obtaining review copies from various legal publishers.
