How do I find law books?

You will find most of the print law books on the second floor of The Sir Michael Cobham Library. We have thousands of law e-books, which you can access both on- and off-campus. Law books date quickly, so make sure you are using the most current edition!

Search the library catalogue (see box below) for records of print books and links to view e-books.

To find a print book, make a note of the shelf mark including numbers and letters (e.g. 349.42/SLA). Take these details to the library shelves and use the shelf mark to locate the book in the sequence. The shelfmark is visible on a book's spine.
