Paralegal Resource Guide: Select Legal Topics for Paralegals


Selected books owned by Loyola are included in the Books section of this guide.  To find an item in Loyola's collection which is not on this list, please use Loyola's online catalog.  Some suggested subject headings you can search and/or browse: 

Legal Assistants--United States.

Legal Assistants--United States--Handbooks, manuals, etc.

Legal Research--United States

In the alternative, you can browse the shelves in the Law Library.  Generally, books aimed at paralegals are located on our 5th floor, at call numbers KF320.  Books on particular legal topics, although written specifically for paralegals, are usually shelved with other books on those topics.  (For example, Basic Administrative Law for Paralegals is shelved with other books on administrative law.)

To locate books in libraries outside the Loyola University Chicago System, use the WorldCat database (valid Loyola ID and password required).
