Classroom Support

The Law Library supports faculty teaching in three ways:

1) Reserve Materials

The Closed Reserve Collection is found behind the Circulation Desk in the Reading Room. The collection includes items on Permanent Reserve due to high demand. The Collection also includes Course Reserve, which contains faculty-identified items that are required or recommended for a particular course. The library obtains these items from libraries on campus or will purchase them, if necessary.  For details, please use the Course Reserve Requests page.   

2) Research Instruction

Research attorneys can provide specialized research instruction to students in your courses and seminars covering major research tools and strategies for that area of law. Contact your liaison to arrange for classroom presentations in your upcoming courses.

3) Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) Exercises

Cornell Law School is a member of the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI), which each year provides a set of online tutorials with exercises on various legal topics. These learning tools for law students can be used to supplement class sessions and readings. Check CALI's Web catalog for a list of current offerings. All tutorials and exercises are accessible from CALI's Web site or a CD. Contact research services librarian Matt Morrison to create a Web account or obtain the CD for yourself or your students.
