(Formerly known as Wolters Kluwer Online Study Aid Library)
All Widener Law Commonwealth students and faculty have unlimited and simultaneous online access to 180+ Aspen Learning Library. Study Aid Series in the online collection include: Academic Success, Casenote Legal Briefs, Emanuel Law Outlines, Examples & Explanations, Friedman's Practice, Glannon Guides, Inside Series, Jumpstart and some bar exam study guides.
A favorite classroom prep tool of successful students that is often recommended by professors, the Examples & Explanations (E&E) Series provides an alternative perspective to help you understand your casebook and in-class lectures. Each E&E offers hypothetical questions complemented by detailed explanations that allow you to test your knowledge of the topics in your courses and compare your own analysis.
Here’s why you need an E&E to help you study throughout the semester:
The Examples & Explanations series has been ranked the most popular study aid among law students because it is equally as helpful from the first day of class through the final exam.
Check that your school’s name appears at the top of the page after “You are logged into.” You have to first log in to the subscription before you can enter your personalized login. It’s a two-step process.
