New on the shelves – December 2016

new-book-cover-2017-01Our list of new books is now updated. Last month, the Law Library received books on a variety of legal topics, including many casebooks for the Spring 2017 course reserves and a couple of titles about famous lawyers who are women.

One of our newly-purchased titles is Sandra Day O’Connor : How The First Woman on The Supreme Court Became Its Most Influential Justice by visiting professor Joan Biskupic. A 2006 New York Times review called it a “well-researched and… revealing account… [That] gets across O’Connor’s blend of smarts and pearls.” 1

Check it out upstairs in the Reading Room at KF 8745.O25 B57 2006.

The Law Library’s collection is constantly growing as we purchase books and other resources to support the scholarly and clinical work of faculty and students. Please let us know if you have a suggestion for a new book.
