Created by a law student for law students, AspenLaw Studydesk ( ) from Aspen Publishers is groundbreaking software that enables students to create, organize, search, visualize and display information more easily and effectively so they spend more time learning the law, and less time organizing information.

"AspenLaw Studydesk transforms the learning process for law school students, enabling them to work smarter, spend time on the highest value areas and achieve better results in the classroom and on exams," said Jennifer Armstrong, marketing director for Aspen Publishers' legal education group.

Organize, Integrate, Succeed

AspenLaw Studydesk is the only integrated software tool that gives students control over how they spend their time in organizing, accessing and learning information.

AspenLaw Studydesk gives students an organized structure for managing information, allowing them to enter cases, class notes, statutes and sources into easy-to-use templates that provide a uniform format and filing system for information. Then, users can simply sort, search and display data in the format that works best for them. Additionally, a Legal Concepts index connects related materials, making it easy to access information on any legal topic form anywhere within the application. A MiniView feature allows users to scroll through thumbnails of documents, so they can search and find information in seconds, giving students the tool they need to master Socratic debate in class.

The software solution also creates a powerful digital integration between students' materials and Aspen Publishers' ancillary study materials, providing a single source solution for enhanced learning.

"Integrating Aspen Publishers' study materials into the AspenLaw Studydesk creates a dynamic environment from which users can gain a deeper understanding through active and intuitive learning," said Armstrong. "And, the best part is all the students' materials are in one place on their desktops, which helps lighten their backpacks."

The digital study materials from Aspen Publishers, such as Examples & Explanations, Emanuel Law Outlines, Law in a Flash cards and Casenote Legal Briefs, integrate with students' own materials, allowing them to sort, search, display and instantly link to Aspen Publishers' content to learn more about legal terms and topics.

Most importantly, AspenLaw Studydesk helps students succeed in law school.

"It's all about results," said Armstrong. "This innovative tool helps students chart progress throughout the semester and prep successfully for exams."

With AspenLaw Studydesk, students can generate study tools from their notes and briefs, including flashcards, quizzes and course outlines, providing the most efficient and effective way to study. Flashcard and Quiz Wizards help students save hours of study preparation time, while an Outlining Wizard enables them to scroll through course documents, drag and drop, sort, fine-tune, preview and save -- all in the same application. Search tools let users perform look-ups on both their own data and Aspen Publishers' content.

Designed By a Law School Student, for Law School Students

AspenLaw Studydesk was developed based on the first-hand experience of Yale University Law School graduate Daniel Tobey who knew that there had to be a better way for students to organize, learn and use the mass of information they were working with.

Tobey attended Harvard College where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with Highest Honors in Social Studies and was awarded the Philo Sherman Bennett Award for the best essay on the principles of free government. He received his law degree from Yale University where he was also awarded the Benjamin Scharps Prize for the best paper by a third-year student and the Margaret Gruter Prize for the best paper on law and biology. A native of Fort Worth, Tex., Tobey passed the Texas Bar Exam in 2005 and is a former associate of Vinson & Elkins, LLP.
