THE LAW LIBRARY

  • The primary goal of the Law Library and its staff is to provide library services to the students and the staff of the Faculty of Law. The library service also extends to attorneys and other law professionals in the Bergen and West Coast area - along with foreign guests and visitors.
  • The library is situated in the middle of the faculty building and is easy to reach.
  • The library staff is there to assist you, in identifying and locating the literature. The library staff consists of lawyers, librarians, clerks and law students.
  • The Law Library ("Det juridiske fakultetsbibliotek", UBBJUR) is one out of seven department libraries at the University of Bergen Library ("Universitetsbiblioteket i Bergen", UBB).

THE COLLECTIONS

  • The Law Library, including the EU i - European Information (formerly European Documetation Centre, EDC), has a collection of more than 100.000 volumes and subscribes to more than 2000 different law journals and law reports - national, Scandinavian and international, including an ever increasing amount of law in electronic wrapping. The collections are located at one floor level (some minor exceptions), and on the web.
  • The library procures all "serious" Scandinavian legal literature, as well as books, journals and reports in foreign languages from other countries in Europe, from EU, and from the US.
  • Besides from the law, we procure literature from related fields like political science, (legal) philosophy, (legal) history, sociology of law, and criminology.
    Please make acquisition suggestions.
