Can you really read a law review or journal article on the Web? The answer is, "it depends." There are a growing number of legal periodicals that are freely available via the Internet, but sometimes determining if a specific article or topic is available and then tracking it down can be a lot of work. For example, what if you are interested in identifying some current articles published in a certain legal field, such as immigration? No matter how good a searcher you are, it is nearly impossible to put "recent Immigration Law articles" into Google and get back a concise, usable list of articles. Instead, the best searching method to follow is making use of specialized websites, which assist in finding articles and legal periodicals on the Internet. Below are a few of these sites that will make the task of searching out articles easier and more time-efficient.
