"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.

Back to (Law) School Apps


As a new school year begins, you may be looking for some ways to start things off on the right foot.  Well, as you might expect, there are apps for that! 

If you need a little help with your legal research, try using the WestlawNext app, which can be accessed for free with your law school account, or the free Fastcase app.  Work on those cite-checking assignments with the Bluebook app ($39.99) and keep up to date on legal news with the free ABA Journal app.

To keep yourselves organized, think about downloading the Evernote app (free), which allows you to gather and save everything you need for your projects in one place.  And we all need a good calendar app; iStudiez Pro ($2.99) can help you plan your schedule and keep you from missing assignment deadlines.  Finally, make sure you get everything on your to-do list done with the list-making app, Clear ($2.99).  

And it’s also important to take a break sometimes!  Check reviews on the Urbanspoon app (free) for restaurant ideas, look for a good book using GoodReads (free), or listen to music through the Pandora radio app (free).
