Materials to help law students brief cases and prepare for their exams. As of the Fall, 2021 semester, qualified CWRU law students will receive an email with a link to set up their passwords.

Troubleshooting

  1. Make sure you are running Case Wireless (not Case Guest) or using VPN (Virtual Private Networking).
  2. If your VPN does not seem to be working, call the UTECH help desk at any time -- 216-368-4356 (HELP).
  3. Try another browser if you are still having trouble accessing a service -- one librarian uses Google Chrome successfully.
  4. After you register with each service, the opening screen should say "Case Western Reserve School of Law" or the equivalent.
  5. For mobile devices, you may need to download the appropriate app to access the Aspen Learning Library.
  6. Ask for help at the Reference Desk if you are still having problems.
  7. If you are registering for the first time with one of the three commercial online study aid services, and you are in the law library any way, it may be slightly easier to use a computer by the reference desk or in one of the computer labs to sign up for the service.

Troubleshooting: As of Oct. 6, 2017, authorized CWRU Law students may access via Case Wireless or remotely via VPN (with Case Guest on laptops within the library).

Chrome users may have to unblock Adobe Flash Players to access audio. (Thanks for the tip, Rob!)

Opening screen should look like this:

First time users, "Create an Account."

Once an account has been created, "Sign In."
