Health Law Legal Research: Books

Finding Books About Health Law

To find books about health law, start with a search in our library catalog. Try these Library of Congress subject headings to better narrow your search (choose Subject from the drop down menu). If you are looking for results from a specific location, add that location to the end of your search. For example, searching for “Health care reform” only yields 10 results, but searching for “Health care reform United States” finds 125. You can also browse the list of results to see items from multiple regions as well as narrower topics.
