Recommended Titles and Treatises
To help provide access to the Texas State Law Library's legal resources, the reference librarians have selected the most noteworthy titles in our collection and arranged them here by subject. The titles listed for each subject feature a brief summary written by a reference librarian, and each subject's titles are divided into those that are specific to Texas law and those that aren't.

The LexisNexis “Understanding” series is similar to West’s Nutshells and Carolina Academic Press’ “Mastering” series. Each topic mirrors the coverage of a first year law school course. Major statutes and important case law are covered, but detailed footnotes are left for the treatise on the subject. While written with law students in mind, this type of overview can be helpful as a refresher for lawyers or a starting point for other researchers. LexisNexis provides a detailed Table of Contents and the first chapter of most volumes in the series on their website http://www.lexisnexis.com/lawschool/study/understanding/
