Secondary sources

Textbooks are a great place to start your research as they contain useful summaries. They also contain references to other resources that you can explore for more in-depth information when you have understood the basics. You can save time by using other people’s research as a starting point for your own. We subscribe to some specific text books in Lexis and Westlaw.
