Books on Spanish law in the Law Bod have shelf marks starting Spain 510. The current collection is on Level 3 - one floor up from the entrance level. The majority of the Law Bod's collection is in Castilian -  some are in Catalan - but there are some works in English too. (See examples below)

On Level 2, the level at which you enter the Law Library, an area of the open shelf collection has books with shelf marks beginning General. 
This is where you will find comparative studies, and works surveying the response to legal problems in two or more jurisdictions. 

Please ask at the Enquiry Desk on Level 2 if you are having difficulty finding your way round our collection.
