Legal encyclopedias, books, and law review articles provide overviews, explanations, and comments on law. The library's legal database, LexisNexis Academic, is a good place to find this kind of information. Here's how:
Start with LexisNexis.
- Click on Search by Subject or Topic (right above the red search box).
- Under Legal, choose either Law Reviews or Legal Reference.
- You may then use Advanced Options, found right below the red search box, to further restrict your search. For instance, if searching Legal Reference, you could choose a particular legal reference title, such as a legal encyclopedia or dictionary.
