Republic of Ireland legal resources - Quick start

Collection: The Ireland hard copy collection in the Bodleian Law Library is situated on floor 2 of the library. Primary sources - legislation and law reports - are shelved after the monograph collection K-KN. Legislation starts at the shelf mark Ireland 10, law reports at Ireland 100, and the Irish law journals follow at Ireland 300. 

Irish legal monographs are now part of the subject-organised section, law of the British Isles, with shelf marks starting K to KN. Works on public law have shelf marks starting KM and private law KN. In these sections works focussing on Irish law have a distinctive geographic code in their shelf mark I5. For example a work on Irish law of contract is KN10 I5 2001
