The Hunter Law Library has been a federal depository library since 1972, and its federal depository collections are open to public use. For assistance, please contact any reference librarian or Steve Averett, the depository library coordinator.


Researching Local Ordinances

For the beginner, I recommend this excellent article on how to research local government law (written by a BYU law librarian):

Shawn G. Nevers, "Local Ordinances: The Often Overlooked Laws," Student Lawyer, Feb. 2014,

For more advanced treatment, see the following treatises (and those listed elsewhere in this research guide):

Eugene McQuillan & Clark A. Nichols et al., The Law of Municipal Corporations, 3rd ed. (West, 2004- ), 30 volumes
    Second Floor Reserve KF 5305 .M3 2004 V.1-19 [Also in Westlaw]

Chester James Antieau & Sandra M. Stevenson, Antieau on Local Government Law, 2nd ed. (Matthew Bender, 1998- ), 6 volumes
    Second Floor Reserve KF 5358 .A6 .A58 1997- V.1-6 [Also in LexisNexis]

Recommended Legal Databases

These are resources to which the Hunter Law Library or the Harold B. Lee Library has purchased a subscription. Most subscription licenses require off-campus access to be limited to BYU law students and faculty. Other patrons are welcome to use many of these resources by visiting the library premises.
