Locating law journal articles on the topic you are researching can be invaluable. Journal articles tend to focus on narrower legal issues, and the authors often gather together all of the relevant law pertaining to the subject-matter being discussed. Articles are especially useful for commentary on emerging areas of the law, and areas undergoing change.
