Off-Campus Access To Databases
To use licensed electronic resources from off-campus, you will need to configure your web browser on your home computer or laptop to route through the campus proxy server. Your Internet browsing appears to be originating from campus, thereby opening the way to resources which are restricted to campus computers.
The proxy server webpage offers detailed instructions for configuring your particular browser. This service is available for all UC Berkeley students. You will need your Calnet ID and passphrase.
Law Library Website
The library's website contains most of the information about library services and resources. A few things to note:
First Year Study Aids
A selection of restatements, nutshells, hornbooks and treatises
A list of law-related databases, with easy filtering by keyword
Old exams but only those that have been submitted to us by faculty
An extensive list of subject-specific research guides
Berkeley Law's online catalog. This is the first place to start to locate books and journals on a particular topic.
clear and effective legal writing
Title search (for a journal):

Note the links to multiple online locations for most of the journals.
OskiCat is the web-based catalog for most of the holdings of the UC Berkeley libraries (but not the law library).
Melvyl includes the holdings of UC campus libraries (including the Regional Library Facilities) plus the holdings of all WorldCat libraries worldwide.
