New Database – CEB OnLAW

The library is pleased to announce the acquisition of the new OnLAW database from California’s Continuing Education of the Bar.  OnLAW provides access to more than 125 of CEB’s California practice guides.  OnLAW’s “libraries” organize the CEB guides by practice area, namely: business law; criminal law; estate planning; family law; litigation; and real property law.

The guides are complete and up-to-date online versions of CEB’s print practice guides, most of which are also available in the library.

OnLAW is available anywhere on campus.  To access it from outside of campus, be sure to set up your browser for proxy access by following the linked instructions from Stanford University Libraries.

For help in searching the database, feel free to stop in at the reference desk or email:
