Law: Journal Articles

Finding Legal Journal Articles

Journal articles often provide up-to-date information on very discrete topics, and can provide alternative views on a topic. How much information you have determines your starting point (see finding law journals).

Use the Legal Citations of Aotearoa New Zealand to decode the abbreviation of a New Zealand journal.

Use the Cardiff index to legal abbreviations to decode the abbreviation of a non-NZ journal.
