Apps for Legal Research & Bar Exam Prep

Over the past few months, I’ve seen a plethora of posts about legal apps from iTunes. I thought I’d create a list of some of the most relevant apps for our law students. Some are free and some are rather pricey. This list is not exhaustive and I do not vouch for the accuracy or authoritativeness of these apps. They are just interesting…

Legal Research and Reference Apps:
Black’ Law Dictionary
U.S. Government Apps
New York Law Apps

Bar Review and Law School Exam Study Aid Apps:
Sum & Substance
MBE Timer

For a more comprehensive list of apps, including ones for Android, Blackberry and Palm, see the following:
Mobile Apps for Law ($49.99, special introductory rate of $25) is a directory of legal research and utility apps for all mobile devices.
The University of Akron Law School’s LibGuide, Mobile Apps for Law Students, features legal apps for iPhone/iPad and Android, as well as eBooks.
UCLA Law School’s LibGuide, Mobile Applications for Law Students and Lawyers, features legal and nonlegal apps for all mobile devices. It is very comprehensive and frequently updated.
