About the Juristisches Seminar

The Juristisches Seminar acts as the central library of the Faculty of Law. Founded in 1862 as the Juristisch-Staatswissenschaftlicher Verein (Law and Economics Association), it received its present name in 1872. The library started by the Association is today endowed with a collection of approximately 75,000 books and 35,000 journal volumes. The holdings are systematically arranged according to subject areas and are freely accessible in the reading rooms. In addition to its vast in-print collections, the library offers access to important German and international subject-specific databases as well as to a large number of other electronic resources. Furthermore, the library offers 700 work-spaces with power supply and connection to the intranet and internet. By way of training events, the Juristisches Seminar imparts the knowledge and skills required to successfully research specialist legal resources - in the library, in databases and on the Internet.
