About to begin a legal research project? Why not take advantage of the work that's been done for you? Whether your looking for a treatise on environmental law, or the latest edition of the Chilean criminal code, there's a good chance the law library has already mapped a path to the information you need. The law library has compiled more than 45 bibliographies and research guides to primary and secondary legal resources in particular topic areas or jurisdictions. These guides are designed to save you time. For example, if you are searching for books on environmental law in MadCat, you may be overwhelmed by the number of titles available, and you may have a difficult time deciphering which resources are of most value to you. Our Environmental Law guide organizes the relevant information into categories -- Dictionaries & Encyclopedias, Directories, Looseleaf Services, Treatises, Wisconsin Materials, etc. -- and includes the most recent and heavily used publications. Some of our guides also provide detailed annotations of sources and suggest research strategies. All of them are periodically revised and updated. Our Bibliographies and Guides by Subject page is housed on our web site. To access this resource, visit the following address:http://library.law.wisc.edu/guides/bibliographies/index.htm.
