Our acquisition of the Oakland County Adams-Pratt Law Library collection will enhance the core collection of print and electronic materials and make it the premier legal research facility in the area.

Our collection includes U.S. Supreme Court cases from 1882 to the present, all federal cases and West’s Regional Reporters beginning with the second series of publication, thus providing access to case law from all jurisdictions, with corresponding digests and Shepard’s volumes.

The Michigan Collection includes all volumes of Michigan Reports since 1878, all volumes of Michigan Appeals Reports, both Michigan Compiled Laws Annotated and Michigan Compiled Laws Service, as well as two digest series for Michigan case law — Callaghan’s Michigan Digest and West’s Michigan Digest. Lexis, Westlaw, Matthew Bender and Hein Online provide electronic access to additional case law, treatises and law journals. Secondary sources are also available, including the American Jurisprudence and Corpus Juris Secundum legal encyclopedias, Michigan Law Practice Encyclopedia, Michigan Civil Jurisprudence, and the entire series of American Law Reports.

Numerous multi-volume treatises on a variety of subjects particularly those supporting the LL.M. programs in Corporate Law and Finance, Intellectual Property, and Tax are also part of the collection. Other titles can be acquired as needed from the Lansing library via a daily shuttle delivery service. Study aids, such as hornbooks and nutshells, as well as all course reserves for Auburn Hills classes, are all on reserve at the library circulation desk.
