Contract_Law_Hints_2014

  1. 1. Contract Law A Research Assignment Hints
  2. 2. 2Contract Law How to find journal articles 1. Search for information in a journal which you know exists already 2. Do a database search to find what information is out there, and in what journals.
  3. 3. 3Contract Law Top 3 databases for contract law • AGIS Plus Text • CCH • CaseBase
  4. 4. 4Contract Law AGIS Plus Text Once you've entered the database, enter your keywords. ***Remember that using quotation marks creates a phrase search which forces the terms together when searching
  5. 5. 5 Example of a journal article from AGIS Plus Text
  6. 6. 6Contract Law Another example of a journal article from AGIS Plus Text If the full text is still not available via this link, go back to the homepage, and check under the “journal” tab by entering the name of the journal (ie. New Zealand Law Journal). This will tell you if there is another online source, or print is available. It is worth following through to check.
  7. 7. 7 CCH – Australian Contract Law Example of a search: “good faith” and commercial
  8. 8. 8 CCH Results
  9. 9. 9 CaseBase If you have particular cases to look up, CaseBase is a good place to start. Here are some examples: Burger King Corporation v Hungry Jacks [2001] NSWCA 187 Specialist Diagnostic Services Pty Ltd v Healthscope Pty Ltd [2012] VSCA 175 Arhanghelschi v Ussher [2013] VSC 253

  11. 11. 11 Hint: This case has been reported in the New South Wales Law Reports (2001) 69 NSWLR 558. You should use the reported version in preference to the AustLII version [2001] NSWCA 187. Note that there are case notes about this case listed in CaseBase (Publications referring to this case).
  12. 12. 12Contract Law Each case has a signal at the end of the citation, which gives an indication of the current treatment of that case. By clicking onto the “signal help” you will get a guide to interpreting the signals.
