Legal Resources

Primary and secondary legal resources

Secondary Resource Collections

Secondary sources are materials that discuss, explain, analyze, and critique the law. They discuss the law, but are not the law itself. Secondary sources can help you learn about an area of law, and provide you with citations to relevant primary materials.

Additional secondary sources may be found using the 'Books & eBooks' (for books of authority, for example) or 'Websites' tabs. Depending on your topic, you may find relevant material in the Multidisciplinary and General or Canadiana research guides, although it will not necessarily be written by a legal scholar.

The resources listed below primarily contain journal and magazine articles. Additionally, some may include materials such as newspaper articles, book reviews, e-books, and conference proceedings.
