Graduate Research in Law

A guide to the library resources for the graduate programmes at Dalhousie Law School.

U.S. Legislation Sources

Launched in July 2016, the new Congress legislative portal makes federal legislative information freely available to the public. Since that time THOMAS has expanded the scope of its offerings to include
Bills and Resolutions, Activity in Congress, Congressional Record, Schedules and Calendars, Committee Information, Presidential Nominations, Treaties, and more.


Law graduates have access to several collections of U.S. Legislation. WestlawNext Canada and LexisNexis Quicklaw (password required) offer substantial U.S. Federal and State legislation collections. LLMC Digital Law Library has an extensive collection of U.S. Government Historical documents including legislation and caselaw. There are also several excellent free collections online such as Cornell's LII and Findlaw, and, of course, official government collections.
