The Law Library at the Center for Law and Justice, which serves as a depository library for both New Jersey and U.S. government documents, is the most comprehensive public law library in New Jersey. The library also houses the collection of the School of Criminal Justice, one of the leading collections in the world.
Over the past five decades, the library`s collection has grown to more than 500,000 volumes, including 140,000 microform volume equivalents. The collection encompasses the current annotated statutory codes and the session laws of the states, federal statutes, court reports, administrative regulations, and decisions. The holdings of U.S. primary legal materials are supplemented by a collection of the primary legal materials of the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
The library maintains an extremely rich collection of legal periodicals, a strong collection of legal texts, digests, annotated reports, looseleaf services, encyclopedias, and citators for U.S. jurisdictions.
The research value of the library is greatly enhanced by its access to a wide range of electronic information formats. This access includes the two major full-text legal databases, Lexis and Westlaw, as well as several extensive nonlegal databases and numerous CD-ROM products.
