Legal commentaries (also known as 'loose-leaf services' or sometimes 'reporters') can look similar to legal encyclopedias but are focused on one particular subject area of law. They usually provide a summary of the law, leading cases and the primary legislation in the area. Commentaries are written by professionals and academics in the subject area, and are updated on a regular basis, making them a reliable source of up-to-date, expert information.
Use the 'By subject area' tab to access links to commentaries on different subject areas. The other tabs display a list of commentaries available by publisher.
