Tips for Searching the Catalog
Search "judges biography", "judges history", "lawyers biography", or "lawyers history" in the subject field.
Search the name of a person in the keyword field to locate additional biographies in the library's print collection.
These resources often provide profiles or short biographies of notable jurists. Request volumes at the front desk.
