The Law Collection dates from the middle of the 17th century onwards. Much of the collection consists of a large number of law reports, which date from the 17th century through to the 19th century. These law reports deal mostly with Great Britain, but Irish law reports are also represented. Other subjects include land tenure, Justices of the peace, Roman law, British conveyancing, equity, ecclesiastical law and bankruptcy. The collection also contains a small number of 19th century biographical works on lawyers and judges, and some works on other aspects of law, such as military law and maritime law.
