The Rutgers Law School Library is the most comprehensive public law library in New Jersey, and provides the students and faculty of the Law School with access to major full-text legal databases. Those databases include not only the current statutes and regulations and complete case law of the federal government and all the states, but also extensive collections of scholarly commentary, practitioners' treatises, historical legal material, and material on foreign law. Our Resources-by-Subject guide offers an extensive list of available study guides and treatises and our guides and pathfinders detail how to research specific topics.
The Library also maintains extensive digital, print, and microform collections, including primary sources and finding tools for federal law and the law of selected states, many major law journals, and many legal and law-related monographs.
The library serves as a depository library for both New Jersey and federal government documents.
"This library is a congressionally designated depository for U.S. Government documents. Public access to the government documents collection is guaranteed by public law. (Title 44 United States Code)"
