Guide to Finding Law Journals and Journal Articles

Searching for Articles using Summon via the Library Catalogue

LibrarySearch allows you to search across many of UTL's print and electronic resources from a single search. To search just for articles, select Articles under Format from the Advanced Search.

**Please note that this search function does not search for articles articles found in Quicklaw or Westlaw. Those databases have to be searched separately.

Acquiring Print-only Journal Articles

Some journal articles are only available in print. To access these articles, you can do the following:

  • Search the title of the journal in which they are published in the UTL catalogue to see if it is available in print at a U of T Library.
  • Check the Bora Laskin Law Library Law Journals Database to locate the journal in print or in electronic databases not available in the U of T catalogue.

We don't have the article? Request it!

If U of T does not have the article you are looking for in either the print or electronic version, U of T community members can order articles through UTL's inter-library loan system RACER. U of T law students can contact the Bora Laskin Law Library if they have questions about inter-library loans.
