Law collection policy


The aim of this document is to outline the Library's acquisition policy in law. Exclusions and qualifications to this policy are mentioned below and in the General Policy Statement: see Principles of collection policy| and Criteria for selection|.

The interdisciplinary nature of the social sciences and its publications means that subject boundaries cannot always be easily determined and described in isolation. 

This document does not cover all areas of potential relevance to the study of law (socio-legal studies, law and economics, regulation, etc).

Collection development policy review

This collection development policy will be reviewed on a regular basis in the light of the following: developments in teaching, the interests of the Law Department and other departments in the School, relationships with other libraries with whom collaborative arrangements exist and recognised national standards for law libraries.

Such reviews will be conducted in co-operation with the LSE Law Department|.
