The best study aids as ranked by National Jurist

The National Jurist has ranked the best study aids, and STCL Houston students have free access to 8 of the top 10. The list, based on recommendations from law students from across the country, includes titles available from the Fred Parks Law Library through CALI, the West Study Aids, and our Lexis Nexis Digital Library, as well as volumes that we have in print. What's in the Top 10, you ask? Emanuel Law Outlines, Examples & Explanations, the Acing Series, CrunchTime, Glannon Guides, CALI Lessons, Nutshells, and Short & Happy Guides. Get access to all these and more, for free, by signing up for an account with the West Study Aids, logging in to Lexis Digital Library, or searching our online catalog, STELLA. All these platforms, and instructions on how to use them, are on the Library page in STANLEY.

It's time for the Library's annual Halloween Photo contest!

 Post a photo with our spookiest patron, Stanley, and/or his Skeleton Squad (Stella, Blanche, Tennessee, and Spike) on our Facebook page* for a chance to win a private study room for finals for you and three of your closest friends. Don't do Facebook? Email us your photo to and we will post it for you. The photo with the most 'likes' wins!  The winner will be announced via our Facebook page and Blog.

Contest Rules: enter as many times as you want and tell your friends to do the same. All entries must be in by midnight, Friday, October 26. Entries will go up on Facebook Saturday, October 27. The voting closes at midnight, Tuesday, October 30. The winner will be announced at noon on Halloween.  Stanley and his Squad are not allowed out of the library, but they can travel within the library itself, and do enjoy fresh air. Stanley has had a bit of bad luck, as you can tell, so make sure all his parts stay together. Group shots are welcome! Winners will be notified at their email address.
 *You can tag us on Facebook using @fredparkslawlibrary, but you MUST make the photo available to the public or we can't see it.
