The SpringerLink database comprises collections of books, journals and reference works. It covers numerous disciplines from Architecture & Design to Social Sciences, and, among them, you can also find Law. A significant part of the law collection deals with contemporary problems of international law, environmental law, criminal law or legal theory. The database also provides a wide coverage across other law subjects.
SpringerLink is one of only a few publishers that permit you to lawfully download a whole book to you computer or mobile device, and keep it indefinitely for your own educational or research use.
Remember, downloading books for others is not allowed. Please only download what you need for the research, course or assignment you are working on – mass downloading to build up a library of your own is unfair on the publisher (and authors) and not permitted.
