Law - General: Interpreting the Law


Generally when you are approaching a question of law, it is easiest to begin with a general source, such as an article or a discussion of the law, and then work back to the law itself.

    Using a subject approach, consult:
  • a legal encyclopedia for an overview of a particular topic of law
  • MaagNet (online catalog) for books or treatises
  • a newspaper or periodical index for articles
