Guide Index

Alphabetical index to Latin American jurisdictions and juridical-economic blocs.

General and comparative resources (covering multiple jurisdictions) can be found under the Comparative tab.

Latin American Collections in the Bodleian Law Library

This guide gives an overview of printed collections and online resources for Latin American jurisdictions and juridical-economic blocs.

Printed resources

You will find the Caribbean, Central and South American countries on Level 1. (The floor below the entrance to the Library.)  Monographs, primary sources (predominately law reports), and law journals (from & including 2000) are each in separate blocks.

The strength and depth of holdings for these countries in the LawBod varies considerably

The shelfmarks are based on the country's name (or an obvious abbreviation of it), but they may start with Cw - indicating that nation is a member of the Commonwealth . (This Cw does not affect the alphabetical order when it comes to position on shelves.)

Comparative studies can be found in the area with the shelfmark General. This is on the main Reading Room Floor, Level 2. Most of the books in this area are in English.
