Many legal sources are not included in the data accessed by Google or Google Scholar. As Google doesn't measure up to the quality and currency that can be obtained from specialist legal databases, it should rarely be used when searching for legal information.
This short video from RMIT Library explains in more detail why legal research on platforms such as Google should be restricted.
Please note Library Search is NOT able to search within the majority of legal databases.
To find cases, journal articles, or other materials within these databases, you will need to access the databases directly using the links below .
These short videos will assist in conducting effective searching of the listed databases.
