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.
