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.
