SSI2-147: "The Law" in America: Law Databases

Legal Research

Law Reviews

Law journal (aka, law review) articles can be a challenging read. Written by legal scholars for attorneys, they are comprehensive works, and may be helpful to a more in depth understanding of your case.  Bibliographies of the articles are often rich with citations to useful documents.

While both Legal Collection and Nexis Uni contain content from law journals, Nexis Uni has other types of content, and its interface tends to be difficult for new users.

ILL: Interlibrary Loan

If your article is not immediately available at Collins Library, you've got an option for getting a hold of it.  Just place a request for it through our interlibrary loan service.

Login to Interlibrary loan using your Puget Sound credentials.

To make a request you can either go directly to ILL and manually enter the bibliographic information for the article in the request form, or, if you're using a database, look for the ILL option in the database record and place the request using that link which will automatically fill out the request form.

Allow at least a week for the article to come in, although often it will arrive more quickly than that. If your article is delivered in electronic format, you'll receive an email with a link to follow as soon as it has arrived.
