Search from inside the Law Journal Library:
Law Journal Library Homepage
To search for an article by title from within the database, enter the Law Journal Library and use the same Advanced Search tool which is located beneath the main search bar. Select the Article Title field from the drop down and insert the name of the article in quotations. For example:
- If you run a search for your article title and get no matches, try simplifying your search by using a smaller portion of the article title.
- If after you try simplifying your search you still do not get any results, try picking key words from the search string and put them into a proximity search.
- For example,“civil rights criminal offender”~15
