Law: secondary sources

This guide will assist you in identifying and searching secondary sources of law.

Journals and journal articles

Electronic resources

Other than Library Search, you may want to look into the following databases for law related journals and articles:

Although Library Search will show you which journals the library has access to, and which database/s these journals are located in, many law journals are NOT searchable in Library Search at an article level. To locate articles in journals that are located in AustLII, LexisNexis AU, Quicklaw and the Westlaw databases, you will need to go into the individual database and search for the article in there.
