This bibliography, now in its seventh edition, is a subject arrangement of selected English language treatises, looseleaf services and form books in the University of Michigan Law Library, current through 2001.

The goal of the bibliography is to list books that provide a starting point for legal research in major areas of American law. It includes only works published since 1990 or those kept current via looseleaf or other supplementation. Books that are kept up-to-date by some sort of supplementation are indicated by a hyphen following the publication date, e.g., "1949-". The bibliography excludes casebooks, journals, popular works and encyclopedias.

To find other works in the Law Library collection on a subject, search the Law Library's online catalog Lexcalibur. Potentially useful search terms are identified under "See Lexcalibur Subject(s):" in the box at the beginning of each list.

Special thanks to Brian Dredla and Jeannette Burton for their work on formatting and producing the bibliography.
