Print Collections

The Law Library’s print collection places strong emphasis on Maryland law. However, treatises, subject-specific books analyzing or explaining law, are also available. The following links display the print items held by the Law Library.

Special Collections

The following collections contain historical and continuing educational material.

  • Old English Collection – A collection of rare books of appellate opinions of the English courts from the 1700s and 1800s. These may be viewed upon appointment only.
  • Maryland Historical Collection – Older books about Maryland and Baltimore County law.
  • National Business Institute (NBI) Seminar Publications – Like Micpels below, NBI books are a great resource for practical tips and sample filings.
  • Micpels and MSBA – These items consist of material produced by attorneys for other attorneys as part of continuing education programs. Micpel was originally a cooperative effort between the University of Baltimore School of Law, the Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA) and the University of Maryland Law School. As of 2010, the Micpel entity no longer exists and the Maryland State Bar Association fully assumed the activities of the older organization. Though the Micpel name does not appear anywhere on the new material, the Law Library continues to refer to the new publications as Micpels and shelves them with the Micpel books.
    • Current – Held at the reference desk. Please ask staff for assistance with these.
    • Superseded – Shelved in aisles L through N.
