Legal Studies

Contact: Susan Edwards

Scope of Collection
The Legal Studies Collection covers primary and secondary sources serving the interdisciplinary undergraduate program in humanities and social sciences and provides a circulating collection of books on high interest topics such as freedom of speech on campus, affirmative action, same-sex marriage, etc. The collections are located primarily in the Gardner (MAIN) Stacks in the Doe/Moffitt Libraries and supplemented with the collection at the Boalt Law Library.

Collection Strengths
Since the collection is intended to support basic undergraduate legal research, it is therefore more general than a standard legal collection. More specialized materials can be found in the Law Library.

Primary Languages and Formats
The collection is in English with some materials in other languages.
