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.

Tours and Classes in the Law Library

Yesterday afternoon a class of Midwestern University psychology students and their instructor came to the Law Library for a tour of our Law Library and an introductory class in using Westlaw. The students were given the opportunity to learn about what resources are available in the Law Library and how to get a Maricopa County Superior Court Law Library card. Law Library staff also presented a computer class introducing the students to Westlaw and what is available on Westlaw using the Law Library’s computers.  Following the Westlaw class, the students were given some practice time to gain some hands on experience using Westlaw to facilitate their research.

If you would like to schedule a tour or class for your group or class on using Westlaw or some other Law Library resource available at the Maricopa County Superior Court Law Library, please contact the Law Library at 602-506-3461 to speak to the Reference Staff!
