"Nota Bene" means "note this well" or "take particular notice." We at the O'Quinn Law Library will be posting tips on legal research techniques and resources, developments in the world of legal information, happenings at the Law Library, and legal news reports that deserve your particular attention. We look forward to sharing our thoughts and findings and to hearing from you.

N.B: Make a note to visit "Nota Bene" regularly.

On Law Students, Reading, and Library

Happy New Year to our readers.  The list below is dedicated to UH Law students.  May you have success and enough sleep in the year to come.  Let us begin 2013 with a smiles or two. 

You Know You Are a Law Student When…  
1.      You know you are a law student when your reading speed is reduced to ten pages an hour.
2.      You know you are a law student when you start spotting issues in everything you read.
3.      You know you are a law student when you consider a great idea to have 24/7 access to your law school library.
4.      You know you are a law student when you meet your friends and make plan for the rest of the week at the library.
5.      You know you are a law student when your student association offers free ear plugs in the library.
6.      You know you are a law student when you think napping in the library is a natural part of life.
7.      You know you are a law student when you start reading the fine print of free Internet downloads.
8.      You know you are a law student when you are happy to find that the used textbook you just purchased from amazon.com is full of notes in the margins.
9.      You know you are a law student when you stay in the library instead of going home for a ten-hour take-home exam.
10.   You know you are a law student when you go to your library at 1 a.m. to study until 6 a.m., then catch a nap to wake up at 7:45 a.m. for your first class.
