The most important collection of the Law Branch Library is now located at the Central Library of the Humboldt University named 'Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum'.

From 1898 until 1917, the legal scholar Franz von Liszt (1851–1919) was a Professor for Criminal Law and International Law at the Humboldt University. In spite of considerable losses during the Second World War, many books of Liszt's extensive library are now located at the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum.

You should make use of the Systematic Card Catalogue and the Alphabetical Catalogue in order to find books of the Franz von Liszt Collection. The collection is stored in closed stacks, so the books have to be ordered with a library ticket.
