Law Review articles: A great place to start your research
posted 13 Oct 2014

If you don’t already use law review articles in your legal research, now is a great time to start! They are articles written by experts and discuss topics related to current legal issues. Because they are written by law professors, judges, or legal practitioners, these articles are often more reliable than the ones you might find through a Google search. Legal research using law review articles has never been easier because they are available digitally through a variety of databases.

The library subscribes to over 1,700 law reviews, law journals, and other legal periodicals. A subset of these periodicals are available in our print collection (arranged alphabetically by title in the library mezzanine), but the majority of our subscriptions are available electronically through the HeinOnline Law Journal Library database.

Don't worry if you can’t make it into the library — you can also sign up for card online and log into Legal Source from home for free to search for law review articles.

Remember, if you have a question, please feel free to contact us.
