Criminal Justice

The Law Library is the primary collecting unit at Yale for criminology, criminal justice administration, penology, police science, and forensic science.  In particular, we purchase significant books of a scholarly or innovative nature, as well as significant books on “true crime” or famous trials.  We collect only lightly in the areas of social work with delinquents and criminals, police science, penology, and juvenile delinquency, and also collect foreign-language materials only lightly.
