Swiss Law reference collection

The Swiss Law reference collection is mainly intended for students but is also open to the lay public interested in law. This collection includes commentary, textbooks and manuals on core and related legal subjects, basic publications covering legal philosophy, legal work and introduction to law as well as reference publications such as legal dictionaries and encyclopaedias. The collection includes publications on Swiss national legislation as well as on international law and how it pertains to Switzerland. Publications relating to the history of law, however, are kept in the Swiss History collection on Level 2 East.

In the information room, you will find the Classified Compilation of Federal Legislation, the Official Compilation of Federal Legislation, the Federal Gazette and federal court rulings. In the reading room, you will find a wide range of the latest legal journals.
