This research guide listing a selection of available resources was created for FISH 503 students by librarians in the Law Library.

Journal Articles

Locating a current law journal article on a specific topic can save hours of research time.

Journal articles

  • tend to focus on narrower legal issues and the authors, usually academics and practitioners in a field
  • provide informed analysis of the law
  • provide references to relevant case law and legislation
  • are especially useful for commentary on emerging areas of the law, and areas undergoing change
  • often provide useful footnotes to other articles, important cases, and related legislation
  • to search for journal articles, use electronic consolidated article indexes for both scientific journals and similar indexes for legal journals

Search using keywords describing your topic, e.g. aquaculture AND British Columbia. Follow relevant subjects to find more articles. Also search by statute name or by case name for case commentary.
