Featured Service--Law School Exam Archive

Did you know that the Law Library maintains an electronic archive of past law school exams? The exams are available only to current members of the law school community via Blackboard.

To access the archive, log in to Blackboard.  Select "Law School Student Community" under the "My Courses" tab. Click on "Law Library Resources". Select "Law School Exam Archive". Available exams are listed by both course name and professor. 

If you would like to submit past exams, model answers, grading guides, or other material to the archive, please contact Marie Summerlin Hamm at mariham@regent.edu for detailed information.

If you prefer not to use the electronic archive, but would like to put hard copies of past exams on print reserve for your students, please contact the Access Services Supervisor, Nikitia Powell, at nikipow@regent.edu.

Featured Resource--LexisNexis U.S. Serial Set Digital Collection

Remember the days when compiling a federal legislative history necessarily meant spending some quality time with a cantankerous microform machine? With the LexisNexis Serial Set Digital Collection, researchers now have web-based full-text access to all the material included in the U.S. Serial Set collection.

The Serial Set, which provides unparalleled insight into the legislative intent of laws enacted by Congress from 1789 through 1969, includes: congressional publications, such as committee reports on public and private legislation, House and Senate journals, numerous investigations, directories, rule manuals, and histories of Congress and the Capitol; executive branch publications, including department and agency annual reports and special recurring publications; and nongovernmental publications, including reprints from magazines, newspapers, professional journals, and much more.

To access the LexisNexis U.S. Serial Set Digital Collection, go to the Law Library's Database & Electronic Resources page. Select "L" from the alphabetical list. Select LexisNexis U.S. Serials Set Digital Collection. Click the gold-lettered LexisNexis U.S. Serial Set Digital Collection link at the top of the description page to be connected to the database.

Off-campus Regent users will be prompted for their Regent logon and password.

For more information about the LexisNexis U.S. Serials Set Digital Collection or to arrange an individual training session for yourself or your Graduate Assistant, contact your Law Library Liaison.
