Rule of Law Research: Journal Articles

Academic Databases

The full text of journals and law reviews in print can be found in the Law Periodicals section on the north side of the law library.  Journals are shelved alphabetically by title.  There are also several electronic sources for full-text journals.

Please Note: While they are excellent resources for American law research, Westlaw and Lexis-Nexis are not always the best starting point for research in foreign and international law, or for interdisciplinary research. 

Other databases may provide better coverage of the material you seek, such as those listed below.

Journal Indexes

Looking through old copies of legal history law journals can show you articles that scholars have written in the past. This can help you in finding a topic or help you find sources that you would not have found on your own.

Taggart Law Library has several print and electronic indexes to help you find journal articles by topic.
