International Criminal Law: quick start

Looking for a Reading List title?

When you search SOLO for texts on your Oxford Reading List you may find that the location is shown as "Law Library Reserve Collection" and that the shelf mark begins KC. These are shelved on Level 2 (the entrance level) - please ask a librarian for directions.

In the Bodleian Law Library, the majority of the current collection for this topic is on open shelf on Level 3. 

This is one floor above the entrance level to the library. It is accessible by both stairs and a lift.

On Level 3 you will find,

International law reports - shelved at Internat 100s
Internatonal Law Journals volumes 2000 to date - shelved at Internat 300.  (If you require a volume from 1999 or earlier, you can find these on the Ground Floor of the Law Library)
Monographs, grouped in broad classifications as follows:
Internat 500  general works on public international law - many of which may have relevant chapters on international criminal law
Internat 580  International criminal law
