If there’s one thing you do a lot in law school it’s read. We’ve had one week of school and you’ve probably read (or at least have been assigned to read) several hundred pages. That’s the life of a law student. With all of that reading you may be looking for ways to mix it up a bit. To help, the Law Library subscribes to a resource called AudioCaseFiles that offers hundreds of .mp3 files of many of the cases you’ll be assigned to read. Cases are organized by subject and also by casebook. You can also search by case name to find the cases you need. You can listen from the website or you can download them and take them with you. It’s true that there may be better things to invigorate a workout than Pennoyer v. Neff, but for law students with limited time this may be a good way to supplement your study. I’ve created a short video to get you started that’s embedded below.
In the next couple of days I’ll highlight a few other library resources that may help your semester get off on the right foot. Stay informed by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter or subscribing to our RSS feed.
