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. All online legal periodical indexes can be accessed via the Law Library homepage at law.library.ubc.ca by clicking on Legal Periodicals Indexes.
To check for specific journals, from the UBC Library homepage at www.library.ubc.ca, on the menu bar, use the Search Collections pull-down menu to select Journals and enter particular title.
