Law Resources: The Basics: Journal Collection

Law Journals

The USask Library subscribes to many different law journals - both print and electronic. These journals cover a broad range of subjects related to current law practices and legal issues. 

A journal is a collection of articles (like a magazine) that is published regularly throughout the year. Academic journals publish articles intended for the research community and are usually peer-reviewed. They present the most recent research and are written by experts for research purposes. Journals may be published in print or online formats, or both.

The University Library pays license to more that 61,000 full-text online journals that current USask faculty, staff and students can access using your NSID and password. 

Print law journals have a unique local call number assigned to them (eg.) Law Serials.C212B97 and are searchable in the library catalogue by either title or call number.

How to access it:

  • Online access to journals can be found using the resources listed in Online Databases, the Library Catalogue and Usearch.
  • For print versions of these titles, portions can be requested via Scan and Send service.
