Legal Journals

Journal articles provide analysis and opinion and can be useful for supporting your research of the primary materials.

They can also be a good source for up-to-date commentary on legal issues. Often relevant legislation and cases will also be cited. There may be cross over of jurisdictions, so the international databases may also contain relevant Australian issues. View the Commentary databases for information about Australian legal journals.

Note: Use the International Law databases for more links to legal journal databases.
