Legal Encyclopedias

Legal encyclopedias

  • are multi-volume sets that provide overviews of the law on a full range of legal topics
  • have commentary providing references and footnotes to primary sources, including relevant cases and legislation
  • are not exhaustive; they won’t refer you to all of the law on a subject
Check the currency date of the information, as some topics may be a bit dated, & read the cases and statutes cited before relying on them.
