    Exam Anxiety? CALI Can Help!  

    Prep for Exams with CALI

    Looking for another tool to help give you an extra leg up for your exam preparation? CALI (Computer Assisted Legal Instruction) is a service available to all law students that include a ton of great resources as you start studying.

    There are individual lessons for common topics like constitutional law, civil procedure, administrative law, etc., subject-specific outlines, and even lessons that complement select casebooks.

    To create an account go to, but you’ll also need the UGA Law authorization code. You can find the code at the library’s reference desk, or you can email me to have it sent to you. Good luck and happy outlining!

    More Exam Resources

    Don’t forget the study guides in the reserve collection on GAVEL.  Search “study guides” in either instructor name or course name index to find the best resources to help with your studying.


    Also, remember to check out the “Study Aids Subscription” link in your WestLaw account. It includes all of the Nutshells and Hornbooks published by West.

    Late Nights at the Law School?

    Does studying for exams have you extending your stay at the Law School into the wee hours of the morning?  If so, please take a moment to consider basic safety concerns:

    •    Never prop open exterior doors
    •    Only open doors for people you know
    •    Find someone to walk with you to your car (especially if you park in a perimeter lot)
    •    Program the University Police number into your phone (706) 542-2200
