As another academic year winds to its end, we wanted to let you know about two new library guides that HLS students may find useful.
First, especially for LLM students who are finishing up their papers, but also useful for JD students doing scholarly writing, is our guide Bluebook Citation for LLM Students. This guide contains slides from the Library’s Bluebook classes, helpful charts, and frequently asked questions and answers, including dealing with non-English sources, American writing conventions, and what to do when the Bluebook doesn’t seem to have a rule for your type of source.
Second is our guide Prepare for HLS Exams intended for all students. This guide rounds up information and resources available in the Library and elsewhere at HLS that can help you successfully through one of the most stressful times in law school. It includes books at the library about taking law school exams, study guides and tools, guides to 1L topics, and ideas for short study breaks. We also include links out to general exam info at the Registrar’s office and the Dean of Student Office’s Wellness program.
We wish you success on finishing your papers, projects, and exams. As always, free earplugs are available at the reference and circulation desks!
