The core collection of the Guam Law Library was acquired when the original Board of Trustees purchased the holdings of a defunct law school in California. That collection, comprising the bulk of the National Reporter System, now forms the core of the case law portion of the library’s holdings. The Attorney General’s Office then transferred many of its volumes to the Guam Law Library.
The Guam Law Library also maintains the Judicial Center Branch libraries to serve the justices, judges and law clerks of the Judiciary of Guam. The Judicial Center Branch contains a core collection of materials relevant to the work of the court. The library, pursuant to a consultant contract, has also assisted in the maintenance of legal materials at the Guam Department of Corrections Library.
You may browse the Library’s collection here. You may also suggest books for the library to purchase by completing a Purchase Order Request Form available here. The form can also be picked up at the service desk.
