Recommended Titles and Treatises
To help provide access to the Texas State Law Library's legal resources, the reference librarians have selected the most noteworthy titles in our collection and arranged them here by subject. The titles listed for each subject feature a brief summary written by a reference librarian, and each subject's titles are divided into those that are specific to Texas law and those that aren't.

Texas rules of evidence manual
1 volume. Updated by new edition.
This title examines each Rule, beginning with the official text and following with editorial analysis, a comparison with the Federal Rule, and a discussion of relevant case law. A discussion of drafters’ comments is provided when available. While the text contains some academic discussion, the book is designed primarily to explain what a particular Rule requires or prohibits, to indicate what the appellate courts have said about the rules and to offer some practical pointers.
