In accordance with the key research areas of WU’s academic units, the collection focuses on the following topics: public law, civil and business law, employment and social security law, European and international law, economic criminal law, intellectual property law, tax law, accounting, and tax management.
In addition, special literature on tax law can be found at the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law.
The Library for Law provides access to a collection of legal literature in the field of Central and Eastern European Economic Law (FOWI) in the following languages: Croatian, Polish, Russian, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Czech and Hungarian.
The library currently has a total of 75,000 books and active subscriptions to about 320 print journals.
WU staff can use two self-service checkout machines to borrow materials from the Library for Law.
WU students and external library patrons may not borrow books but may use them in the library. A reference collection with the most important reference works for all legal subjects is always available in the reading room for all user groups. For this reason, these reference books cannot be borrowed by scientific staff either.
There are four color scanners which can be used free of charge. You can save the scans as PDF, TIF, or JPG files on an external storage device (USB flash drive, external hard disk drive, memory card).
