Study guides are intended for law students learning about a particular body of law, and may include subject outlines or practice questions.
Treatises are intended for practitioners, and provide more in-depth guidance. They may include sample forms or checklists, and are usually updated periodically to reflect new developments in the law. If you are researching an area of law that you are unfamiliar with, finding a treatise covering the subject is a good way to get started. Most of the LRC's treatises are available electronically through Westlaw, Lexis, or Bloomberg Law.
Current awareness tools gather recent news, cases, and legislative/regulatory developments, helping practitioners stay up-to-date on a particular area of law. If your practice or research focuses on a particular area of law, you may find it convenient to set your Bloomberg, Lexis, or Westlaw home page to the current awareness page for your specialty area.
