Tarlton Law Library has a long history of specialized publications. Three series are produced in Special Collections: The Legal History Series, The Oral History Series, and the Faculty Publications Newsletter.

The Legal History Series

In the preface to the inaugural volume -- Guillermo Margadant, Illustrations of the Sachsenspiegel: A Medieval German Law Book -- former director Roy Mersky expressed the hope that the series would inspire "exploration of the rich sources of our legal heritage," and that the series itself demonstrate the "importance of libraries and archives to legal history."

The Oral History Series

In 1986, Tarlton Law Library began collecting and publishing the oral histories of oustanding alumni and faculty members. In 2005 it became clear that the collection warranted its own series, and with the publication of an interview with alumnus Joe Jamail (UT Law 1953), the series was born. Each year the library strives to add two edited volumes to this growing collection, and so preserve the history and legacy of outstanding members of the UT Law School community in their own words.
