A Finals Poem

It's finals time again
And all are nervous and scared 
But worry not - we're here for you
We'll help you get prepared

With "Examples and Explanations"
And perhaps some "Q & A"
You'll find the answers needed
To get that passing grade

So stop by the circulation desk
To peruse our study aids
They'll give you all the hows and whys
To earn that coveted "A."

Exam Resources

The law library has resources to help you through the stress of finals:

  1. The law library maintains an Exam Bank at http://lawlib.stmarytx.edu/exambank.html , where you can find old exams given at St. Mary's. You can use the buttons on each column to sort by date, professor, or course.
  2. The law library has additional exams for Professors Johnson, Liu, and Ariens available in binders at the front desk.  These are the multiple choice question binders.
