Research Guides/Bibliographies

Sometimes helpful research sources for a particular area of the law have already been pulled together by someone else.  Examples of research guides and bibliiographies on constitutional interpretation include the following:


Encyclopedias: Legal encyclopedias provide general overviews of legal topics and references to other research materials. These encyclopedias will have a subject index to help you find entries by topic.  For example, if you wanted to look up the topic “First Amendment” in the index, it might lead you to the encyclopedia’s article on “Constitutional Law" which you could then look up in the appropriate encyclopedia volume.

A.L.R. Annotations: Experts in a particular area of the law write the annotations, or articles, found in American Law Reports. They usually focus on a very narrow area of the law and can provide case citations and references to other secondary sources.  Annotations can be found topically using the index or from citations found in other secondary sources.
