This article is intended to be a practical guide to current bibliographies and other research sources dealing with French law. It is addressed to both the legal scholar and the law librarian. Some of the sources are acquisition or selection tools; others are guides to the literature.

This guide includes primarily English and French language publications, but a few works in German are noted as well. Recent sources in particular are included so that the bibliography may serve to update some of the excellent French legal research guides already available.

General sources are given first, and then specific sources. Part II deals with general bibliographies, Part III with legal bibliographies, Part IV with guides to the literature and introductory works, and Part V with other sources of bibliographical information such as encyclopedias, treatises, and periodical literature.
