Journal articles discussing cases

Why find journal articles discussing cases?

  • Journal articles provide information more current than that found in a book.
  • Legal journal articles will identify recent developments in the law.
  • They provide a comprehensive overview or analysis of a specific area of law including any relevant commentary, case law or legislation on the topic.
  • Journal articles are usually brief, concise and to the point.

Finding journal articles.

  • To find journal articles you will need to search specific legal databases as well as the Library catalogue, NewCat+.
  • When you find a reference, copy the journal name (not the article title) into the Library catalogue search box to see if the journal is held online or in print format.
