Jurisprudence in law journals

Print resources

Journals which are exclusively about legal philosophy and theory have shelf markings beginning Jurisp 300. Issues from & including 2000 are on Floor 1, earlier issues are on Floor 0. Both areas are open access - and readers are welcome to take journals from there to whichever floor of the library they are working on.

However, many law journals are happy to include jurisprudence in the mix of their contents - and these will be shelved in other parts of the LawBod: for example the Harvard Law Review has shelf mark USA 300

Searches in SOLO (the library catalogue) will show that other Bodleian Libraries - such as the Social Science Library (next door) and the Philosophy and Theology Faculty (at the ROQ, about 15 mins walk away) hold print runs of useful journals.
