Introduction

This guide includes the Library's most current, updated secondary and practice guides, most often in loose-leaf format. However, for those subject areas where the Library owns few print sources, the links to the subscription databases on Lexis and Westlaw are provided. Please see the Database Access Guide for more information. 

The guide is arranged by subject, then arranged alphabetically by title. Each subject area page includes a link to the Guide Outline (top right-hand corner), which will take you to the box on the Introduction tab (to the left of this box). The Guide Outline includes direct links to subject area pages, as well as cross-references to related subject areas. You can also use the 11 main tabs and multiple subtabs to navigate to the various subject areas. The main tab page includes the first subject area listed on that tab. Each page may be printed out by using the "print" feature located above the tabs.

The call number for each title is hyperlinked to the library catalog. View the catalog record to check the Library's holdings and the most recent update of that title. In some cases, the Library no longer updates the print copy, but provides online access through a UCLA or UCLAW database. The library catalog record includes a link to "Online Access."

All titles are located in the law library stacks unless otherwise indicated. Very few of these publications can be checked out. In general, if a title is a loose-leaf, it may not be checked out. "Reserve" indicates that the title must be requested at the Circulation Desk, may be checked out for two hours and may not be taken outside Library.

The boxes directly below this one list General Encyclopedias, such as AmJur, the Witkin publications, ALR, and the Rutter Group Practice Guides.

Finally, while the primary focus of this guide is on the Library's print titles, law students and others who would like to access legal treatises online may wish to take a look at the box Tips on Finding Treatises Online (below, right column).
