Finding Secondary Sources

After browsing through this secondary source section of the LibGuide, a good starting point might be to run a search for your key terms in:

1) The BC Libraries catalog;

2) The Harvard Libraries catalog; and

3) WorldCat, the closest thing to a worldwide library catalog search, through which you can make interlibrary loan and scan requests for items not help by your school.

For this class, a few of the most common types of helpful secondary sources are books and articles about the history and evolution of legal education, books and articles about specific law schools, dissertations and theses on the topic of legal education, and newspaper articles.
