FAQ: Arizona Legal Material – NBI


Newest NBI books available at the Downtown Law Library.

National Business Institute (NBI) is a resource for Arizona specific legal materials and seminars. NBI offers on-demand materials, books, CD’s and DVD’s for most states.

NBI books are continuing legal education (CLE) courses offered to attorneys. NBI prints a book of the course and then sells them to the public. For more about NBI click here.

These books can be invaluable for finding Arizona topic specific laws and pertinent secondary information when no other exists. NBI books are not your typical treatises; the books have a table of contents but no index and often look as though the course handouts were scanned in.

Come check out the Downtown Law Library’s NBI collection next time your looking for a needle in an Arizona haystack: Law Library NBI books.

Book Review: Flash Mob Law by Ruth Carter

Before you decide to be part of a flash mob, you might want to check out one of our newest library books first: Flash Mob Law by Ruth Carter.  According to the ABA, Ms. Carter, an Arizona attorney, is one of only two attorneys in the U.S. that practices flash mob law.  And, her book doesn’t stop at just flash mobs.  She also covers public pillow fights, groups riding public transportation with no pants, and as she puts it “other shenanigans.”  Like our mom used to say: it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.  So Ms. Carter does talk about personal injury.  But, she also discusses criminal law, privacy, intellectual property, and jurisdiction.  It’s not all legalities though.  She also provides some practical tips for flash mob planning.  This book is definitely a must read before your next flash mob!

For availability at the law library: Check the library catalog record. 

To purchase: Check ABA Bookstore.
