The Law Library can assist you with finding the right law review to submit your work and can offer step-by-step guidance on submitting publications through ExpressO and Scholastica.

Along with the research services that the Law Library provides, we also subscribe to several legal and non-law-related online databases. Faculty can sort through electronic resources alphabetically, by subject, or by database provider.

In addition, faculty can access a wide variety of databases, electronic journals, and e-books through the University Library.
