Treatises are scholarly writings by experts in their field. They are broader than most books, covering entire areas of law instead of single events or specific topics under the law. They are typically updated and usually have multiple volumes.
There are two main legal encyclopedias: American Jurisprudence, 2d (AmJur2d) and Corpus Juris Secundum (CJS). These encyclopedias provide information on legal topics.

AmJur2d is also available on Lexis.
