View this video to learn how to find publications in Nexis Uni utilizing the guided search

Law reviews are scholarly publications that are often edited by law students in conjunction with faculty members. They may contain lengthy articles and also shorter essays by professors and lawyers, as well as comments, notes, or developments in the law written by students. Law review articles often focus on new or emerging areas of law and they can offer more critical commentary than a legal encyclopedia.

They are a great secondary source for legal research, valuable for the depth in which they analyze and critique legal topics, as well as their extensive references to other sources, including primary sources.
