In honor of Law Day 2019, the Library of Congress is highlighting our law-related Research Guides:
- Law: Beginner’s Guides – This series of guides was created with the novice in mind and features a wide variety of topics, including Landlord-Tenant Law; Neighbor Law; Legal Drafting; Contract Law; Social Security Disability Law; Wills, Probate, and Advanced Directives; and more!
- American Law guides offer information on amendments to the U.S. Constitution (part of our Primary Documents in American History guides) and guides covering U.S. Supreme Court Nominations and Records and Briefs.

Over 60 research guides on a wide variety of topics are available at guides.loc.gov. To learn more about the new LibGuides site, see the recent post published on the Library of Congress blog.
