Center for Advanced Legal Studies provides new textbooks to students at the beginning of each course term. Unless otherwise informed, CALS assumes all students will purchase textbooks through the school. CALS does not rent textbooks or buy back used textbooks. Students may purchase used textbooks identical to those used in the classroom if preferred. Also note, books and editions may be changed before the list is updated. Please contact CALS before purchasing your textbook to ensure it is the correct book for your scheduled class. Students are responsible for informing CALS of books purchased on their own prior to book shipment.

*Our custom books are truncated versions of the full textbook, containing only the material the professor uses in the class. Students may purchase the full textbook on their own, used or new, if they desire.
