Finding a Legal Treatise

Treatises can be tricky to find in the catalog. The word treatise is often not used in the title or description.

Use our handy Legal Treatises by Subject guide to quickly locate a treatise in the library.

The guide provides a direct link to the e-version of the treatise if available on Westlaw or LexisAdvance.

Navigating the Library
