If you don’t know anything about the topic, you could look for a textbook on the subject. Use the Library catalogue and refine your results by: content type, subject terms, and publication date.
If it is a new area of law, start by looking at newspapers in databases such as Factiva or Australia & New Zealand Newsstand.
Then look for commentary in journal articles from:
- Australia – GIS Plus Text or Informit: Australian Public Affairs Full Text
- International – Westlaw, Lexis.com, HeinOnline
To find the Library guide about Law resources go to:
- Library Homepage > Guides > Law, Humanities & the Arts > Law - Guide > Journals & databases
- Australia – LAWLEX, LexisNexis AU or Westlaw AU
International – Westlaw, Lexis.com, HeinOnline, WorldLII or CommonLII both found in AustLII
