About /


With over 50,000 volumes on Public Law and the related fields of international, comparative and EU law, as well as Human Rights, the Academy’s European Public Law Library is one of the largest specialized academic law libraries in Europe. Its corpora on national law covers over 50 countries worldwide.

The library now has an online catalogue that can be found at the link: http://eplolib.openabekt.gr/

Founded in 1995, the Library holds collections in printed form in more than 13 languages (English, French, German, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Czech, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish and Ukrainian).

In addition to the extensive collection of periodicals, which enumerates upward of 70 titles, the “European Public Law Organization” has developed and maintains the journal exchange program between the “European Review of Public Law” and prestigious legal journals.

The Library journal collection includes: Quaderni Constituzionali (Italy), Revue de droit Monégasque (Monaco), University Law Journal (Ukraine), Juridica International (Estonia), Arhiv za pravne i drustvene nauke, Pravni Zapisi (Serbia), Buletin Stiintific (Romania), Revue française d’administration publique (France), European Constitutional Law Review (Netherlands), Journal of International and Comparative Law, Pittsburg Law Review, Chicago-Kent Lew Review (USA), and many other journals.

On a constant basis the library receives the updates from the Court of Justice of the European Union (in English and Greek), from the Human Right Information Bulletin (in English and French) of the Council of Europe and from the Case-Law Information Note (in English and French) of the European Court of Human Rights. A unique library comprised of theses of 100 PhD Candidates completes the collection. 

The EPLO library is part of the Electronic Document Delivery Service of HEAL-Link (Hellenic Academic Libraries Link), a free service which allows users to request articles from the subscriptions of HEAL-link and receive one printed copy of the requested article. The requests will be sent and handled through the library.

 HEAL-Link is operating as a consortium and composed of 43 Institutions/Members and provides material from multiple scientific fields. The article requests are handled through a secure, open source software, NILDE which ensures the exchange happens in the easiest possible way without any copyright violations.

The catalog of the available material can be found here: www.heal-link.gr More about the terms of service can be found here
