Finding Articles in Legal Journals and Law Reviews

In-depth research should always involve the use of legal journal articles. A large proportion of scholarly legal literature is published in law school law reviews. Other types of law journals are bar association journals and journals written for legal practitioners.

Many full text scholarly legal journals are hidden behind a pay wall. The library discovers, curates and subscribes to almost all scholarly law journals in a variety of formats.
