Farnsworth on Contracts and Our Treatises Guide

Edward Allan Farnsworth (1928-2005) was one of America’s most renowned legal scholars on contracts. He taught at Columbia Law School for over 50 years.

Farnsworth on Contracts is now in its 4th edition and is being edited by Professor Zachary Wolfe from George Washington University. This treatise is considered essential by students, faculty, and practitioners alike in the area of contracts.

Farnsworth served as a reporter for the Restatement (Second) of Contracts as well and his treatise shows how the Restatement along with the Uniform Commercial Code has influenced and shaped Contract law. The reader will find case references that are cross referenced along with drafting tips.

Farnsworth is also available online for CSU affiliates.

Ten Books on Meditation, Mindfulness and Yoga from Our Collection

Sometimes passive relaxation – like scrolling through social media or binge watching Netflix – is not enough to unwind from a stressful week (or semester) of law school, especially with exams coming up. Adding in active relaxation can help, and meditation, mindfulness practice or yoga can be three great ways to actively chill out.

In the library, we have a great collection of wellness-related books that you can check out. You can find many (but not all) of them highlighted in our Mental Health and Well-Being guide. If you want to look for more titles, search Scholar, the library catalog.

Here are some suggestions for books from our collection specifically about meditation, mindfulness and yoga. If you’d like to check any of them out, click on Find It and then request the book through Scholar, the library catalog. The book will be ready for you to pick up, either in the library on our pick up shelf, or through curbside pickup if you request that option.
