Practice Guides


Practice guides are in-depth resources that provide step-by-step procedures, interpretations and analyses of the law, and sample pleadings and transaction forms. Practice Guides are well-written and well-organized, and can give you a good understanding of procedural and substantive law, as well as the hands-on instructions necessary to file and prosecute your case. Most of the Law Library's California practice guides are published by the five publishers discussed below:

Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB)

Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB), an office of the California State Bar, publishes more than 100 Practice Guides on a variety of legal topics. These guides typically cover very specific legal topics, and provide very good explanations of the law and excellent sample forms. These forms are often available on accompanying CD-ROMs. CEB also publishes more than 50 Action Guides, which provide good step-by-step instructions and checklists for common actions. More than 90 of the Practice Guides and Action Guides are available electronically via the Law Library’s subscription to OnLAW, accessible on the Library’s public computers. These titles are denoted with a red arrow (►).

The Rutter Group (TRG)

The Rutter Group publishes the California Practice Guide series. These practice guides are written in an outline form, which can make finding specific information easy. While these books are very detailed and heavily annotated, they are not the best choice when looking for forms. The Rutter Group practice guides are available electronically through the library's subscription to WestlawNext, accessible on the Library's public computers. These titles are denoted with a blue arrow (►).
