The Hunter Law Library collection contains a number of books designed to help students both survive and succeed in law school. These books contain practical advice on everything from maintaining a healthy mental approach and preparing for class to creating course outlines and taking exams. Most of these titles are located in the Reserve Reading Room in the KF 283 call number range. A few of the more recent titles are listed below for your convenience. Please note that Law School: a Survivor’s Guide was written by our own Interim Dean, Professor James D. Gordon (and with a generous dose of his usual humor I might add).
Welcome to the law school. We hope you have a great year!
