General Legal News Sources
Legal News articles updated daily. Most articles contain links to court filings and decisions.
Law Blogs may discuss new and interesting topics in particular areas of law. Here are a few that may be helpful:
Finding Law Review Articles
Want to see what has already been written on a particular topic? Want to read existing articles to get ideas for new or related topics? Have an idea for a unique topic and you want to do a pre-emption search? Or perhaps you want to find law review articles that discuss a particular statute or case? The following sources may be helpful:
Use Lexis Advance to find law review articles by searching directly for articles OR by Shepardizing a case or statute to find articles on that law.
Use Westlaw to find law review articles by searching directly for articles OR by KeyCiting a case or statute to find articles on that law.
HeinOnline offers easy-to-read .pdfs of law review articles back to the 1800s. You may search by author, keyword, or word in title. Note also that you may use the HeinOnline citator to see if a particular article is cited by other law review authors.
Links to articles and abstracts of articles on HeinOnline, SelectedWorks, SSRN and other sources. Note that many articles are posted on Selected Works or SSRN before being accepted for publication. It is not unusual for articles to be freely available on the web BEFORE they are available on commercial databases, such as Westlaw and Lexis.
