Research Guides

Find Law Review and Journal Articles

Search the Print and E-Journals using the title of the journal or law review.

Search the Library Catalog using the title of the journal or law review. 

These two sources are complementary, so check both for databases (except for Westlaw and LexisNexis) that contain the full text of the journal.

Check WorldCat, which contains cataloging records of books, audiotapes, videotapes, and databases of OCLC member libraries.

Use Interlibrary Loan to request an article from a law review or a journal that is not available in the Pace collection.
