Religious Legal Systems

While there are a limited number of legal materials in Arabic and Hebrew in the Islamic and Judaic collections of the Law Library, we rely heavily on the vernacular holdings in the Near Eastern and Judaica collections of the Sterling Memorial Library. The Law Library does acquire  a significant number of monographs on Islamic and Judaic law in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, as well as a few journals relating to these religious legal systems.  To a much lesser extent, we collect materials on the legal systems emanating from the Eastern religions.
