What are Secondary Sources?

word cloud

Secondary sources provide an overview of legal issues and concepts in a given area of law.  If you you are unfamiliar with a topic, background sources are useful because they analyze, explain, and comment on the law while giving you a context for your issue.  Secondary sources may save you time by pointing to relevant primary sources. Law and economics treatises, written by legal scholars, provide necessary background information to get started and synthesis and analysis for more depth of understanding. General background sources include encyclopedias, dictionaries, treatises, journal articles and law reviews.
