Journal articles discussing legislation

Why find journal articles discussing legislation?

  • Journal articles provide more current information than that found in books.
  • They are usually concise and to the point providing detailed analysis of specific sections of legislation.

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.
