Law Reviews & Legal News

Note: A law review journal is a journal typically published by students at a law school or a bar association. Often these are reviews of legal cases and a discussion of legal issues and are not considered empirical research. They will often be used by lawyers to discover relevant cases for their client's case.

United States Congress & Public Policy

These resources provide excellent summaries of United States public policy issues discussed in Congress on a weekly basis.  Broader topics are discussed further in the almanac and multi-year resources listed below.
