Administrative Law Research Guide: Books in the Collection

This guide is intended for students who are learning about administrative law and its sources, and to help scholars and practitioners locate materials in the library and online. Content additions are gradual but steady. Please check back often!

Using the Marquette Online Catalog

Eckstein Law Library has hundreds of administrative law titles. A selection of treatises and recent monographs is shown here. To find materials in the law library and Raynor collections, use the Marqcat online catalog. Subject and keyword searches are good ways to start research in the catalog if you do not have a specific title or author.  

Most print secondary source materials for U.S. administrative law are located on the 2nd floor of the law library. International sources are found mostly on the 3rd floor, and current Wisconsin materials are on the 1st level. Materials cataloged as reference or reserve also are on the first floor. To find resources located in libraries outside Marquette's collection, you can search the public WorldCat database or the WorldCat Discovery database in the left margin of the Law Library home page.

Please ask a reference librarian for help with your research questions.

Empirical Legal Research
