Legal Resources

Law at the Alma Jordan Library

Currently, the AJL provides access to millions of electronic law and law-related documents such as journal articles, conference papers, treaties, statutes, regulations, law reports, case transcripts and other materials. The Library’s print law and law-related collection encompasses thousands of titles such as books, journals, dissertations and theses and other materials. Overall, the electronic and print collections span materials from selected Caribbean, Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth jurisdictions and offer coverage of domestic, regional and international law, the sociology of law, criminology, justice and more.

The highlight of the collection is the provision of access to several renowned subscribed electronic databases (local, regional and international), that conveniently make thousands of sources of legal information available to faculty and students, on and / or off campus.

The physical law collection is located on the 4th Floor of the Library, within the Social Sciences Division.

The law collection is supported by a dedicated Liaison Librarian who offers reference and research guidance, customised information literacy instruction, database training and technical assistance to faculty and students.

For members of the teaching faculty, the Liaison Librarian also offers assistance with requests for materials, course and syllabus changes, current awareness and much more. Please refer to the Library’s website ( for further information on those and additional services.
