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.
If you prefer, you can search through the collection of recommended titles and treatises.

Transgender persons and the law
There are very few books written focusing on the legal need of transgender persons. The volume begins with an explanation of the "what or who" transgender person is and the unique legal issues that may arise. Chapters are devoted to practice aspects such as identification documents, public facilities, immigration, and employment issues. Other chapters cover health care and personal safety. There are state law appendices on identification documents, driver's licenses laws, and marriage. Other appendices provide city and county level nondiscrimination ordinances. An accompanying CD provides forms for name and birth certificate changes.
