Generally, treatises give researchers a broad overview about a topic or area of the law.
Legal Encyclopedia provides a set of brief articles on a given subject and is a good place to start your legal research if the area is new to you.
An ALR article treats a very specific legal issue and is in greater depth.
Form books help students and lawyers draft complaints, answers, and other motions used in court proceedings.
Journal and law review articles offer another research opportunity because often authors will present in-depth analysis about a particular issue and include useful citations.
These secondary resources contain references to cases and other secondary resources.
See sub-pages under this page for more subject-specific books.
