The most relevant legal journal articles are included in our eResources: Westlaw, LexisLibrary and the Law Journal Library, with i-law for maritime legal articles.
You can search for articles by topic/subject.
These eResources contain many fulltext articles but all have different content, so you are advised to search more than one.
You will find that these eResources include some article abstracts (just a brief summary) and the full article may not be available for all of your results. Search for the title of the Journal (not the article!) on the Library Catalogue to see if we have a subscription. Some journals may be available in full on other eResources, or as printed journals in the Law Library.
For other journal articles, try the Articles tab on the Library Catalogue:
The Articles tab is very general and you may get a lot of results which are not relevant.
