The Squire, in conjunction with the University Library, has now purchased The Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises 1800-1926, a database of GALE Cengage Learning, which provides scholars and students with a digital collection covering the watershed period of legal development during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The database is a comprehensive full-text, searchable collection of Anglo-American legal treatises of the period.

The Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises, 1800-1926:

  • Covers almost every aspect of American and British law
  • Includes casebooks, local practice manuals, form books, works for lay readers, pamphlets, letters and speeches
  • Encompasses a range of analytical, theoretical and practical literature for research in United States and British legal history
  • Allows researchers to trace the evolution of historical and contemporary legal study in the U.S. and Britain during periods of monumental change

The service can be found in the Legal Databases section.
