About

The Nutshell series is a study aid that offers condensed and precise summaries of the law.

Access

Most of the recent editions of Nutshells are in the reserve room in the BYU Law Library. They are available for check out for two hours to law students only. However, anyone can go into the reserve room and read them without checking them out.
