Student Services: Resources for CUA Law Students

West Online Study Aids

The library's West Academic Study Aids subscription provides students with unlimited online access to more than 430 titles from West Academic Publishing. Over ten series are available, including Acing, Black Letter, Exam Pro, Gilberts, Sum & Substance Quick Reviews, and more. Books on academic success, bar preparation, and career success are included.

New! Audio lectures are now also available for streaming. See the  Study Aids: Audio box to the right for more information.

Click the link below to access West Academic  Study Aids. Be sure to create a West Academic login (this login is different from your Westlaw OnePass login). Your West Academic login will ensure off-campus access to the study aids and will also enable you to highlight titles, take notes, and save favorites.
