Course Support


Coursework is Stanford University’s web based course management system that displays announcements, syllabi, readings, and much more. All law school classes have a CourseWork page.


The Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL), sponsor of CourseWork, has adopted Canvas as Stanford’s primary learning management system (LMS). For questions regarding this new LMS, please contact the library reference desk.

Digital Reserves

The Digital Reserves functions as an archive of exams, model answers and syllabi from pervious years. Access is limited to the law school community.

Stanford Syllabus

Stanford Syllabus is a central, online repository for Stanford class syllabi.

Course Reserves
