For this exercise, we will be researching the following topic:
Freedom of speech on college campuses
NOTE: The US Legal – Law Review portion of LexisNexis defaults to phrase searching.
What this means is that if you type two words right next to each other, the database will only search for and retrieve articles that have those words right next to each other. Often you will need to put the word AND between each of your keywords or keyword phrases to expand your results.
You can use tools within LexisNexis to refine your search.
The Print, Email, Save and Export (to RefWorks) icons are at the top right of the screen of each law review article.
