A widely understood stereotype for the law school experience is that there is a lot of reading. A. LOT. OF. READING.  In the law library here at Richmond School of Law, we don’t see a need to debate this point.  However, we like to remind our students that it’s possible to supplement your reading with audio sources.  All law students have access to several sources with audio lectures on topics from torts to trials to trademarks.  If you’re looking for a break from reading or looking to get some activity with the lovely weather we’ve had lately, here are three services you can listen to while walking your dog, washing your dishes, or doing almost any other activity!

  • West Academic
    • Our subscription to West Academic includes both audio lectures and audio books of popular study aids (including the Short & Happy Guides to various law school subjects!).


  • Wolters Kluwer
    • Wolters Kluwer’s In Other Words audio series covers fundamental topics in law, including first-year basics and upper-level elective topics. Each lecture is written and presented by a law professor or legal practitioner.


  • Computer Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI)
    • Most students will recognize CALI for their interactive lessons and scholarship awards. CALI also provides topic-specific audio guides you can download to hear on any device. Find CALI audio materials under the CALI Podcasts section of the website.


Please note that you will need to log in to the campus VPN to access these products off-campus.
