Boston College Law Library

Celebrating Banned Books Week

"No list available will give the names of all the books that you would want kept out of your lending library." So wrote the Secretary of Boston's own New England Watch and Ward Society in a letter dated July 8, 1930. While the threat of censorship may be less apparent today, the American Library Association's Banned Books Week is an opportunity to celebrate the freedom to seek out and express ideas and viewpoints, even unpopular ones. Stop by the Law Library's Banned Books Week exhibit to learn more about books that have been banned and challenged in the United States.

Ravel - Free Access Available to Law Students

BC Law students have free access to Ravel Law, a legal research tool.  Ravel has a unique data visualization feature to illustrate relationships among a series of case law cites.  Learn more about Ravel on the Legal Eagle Blog.
