Journal articles, like other types of secondary sources, can be used to better understand a many topics and should be incorporated in any research paper. Legal journals, often called law reviews, are no exception, particularly because they contain references to relevant primary sources (cases, statutes, regulations, etc.). Law reviews also provide in-depth legal analysis, critical perspectives on the law, and proposals for legal reform. As a result, law journal articles can be particularly useful for students working on papers for law or law-related courses.
This research guide provides options for finding journal articles, both law reviews and non-legal articles.
