Apps to Help You Study

It seems that spring has finally arrived. It’s time for sunnier weather and baseball, but also those dreaded final exams. If you’re already feeling burned out, you may want to try a new approach to refresh your study habits.

First, check out our Study Aid Guide. CALI Lessons and Digital Study Aid eBooks are available with your log-in and can be accessed from anywhere.

Next, if you are looking for something a little more mobile, there are many apps available for smartphones and tablets.

Free Flashcard Apps: Both of these apps are free and allow you to create your own sets of digital flashcards on your phone, instead of carrying around stacks of 300 index cards. These apps also let you browse and download existing sets from other users (use caution here, not all content may be accurate).

Fee-based Apps:
Law Dojo  – Currently available for iOS, features a variety of games to test your legal knowledge, prices vary by topic but generally less than $5.

Law in a Flash sets from Wolters Kluwer are now available in app form, check GooglePlay or the iTunes store for the topics you need. Prices vary, usually around $20 per topic.

LexisNexis Law School Q&A Series is also now available as an app, in both the GooglePlay and iTunes stores. The app includes 39 legal subject areas, each costing about $20.

Are you an auditory learner? Try Study Songs available for iOS. This app features key legal concepts for the MBE, set to music. The app is free and includes 3 free tracks, then users can select additional tracks for $2.99 each.
