Law Library of Congress

Everyone has heard of the Library of Congress but did you know there is also a Law Library of Congress? Established in 1832, it is the world’s largest law library with a collection of over 2.65 million volumes. There are books from the early years of publishing through the present day. They cover virtually all of the world’s jurisdictions and are written in numerous languages. And a few of them are not available on the internet. The Law Library of Congresses also publishes reports on a variety of legal issues. These reports are created to inform members of Congress but many of them are available online to the general public. If you are ever in the nation’s capital, it might be an interesting and less visited attraction. But until then, you will have to visit the website.
