Law journal (aka, law review) articles can be a challenging read. Written by legal scholars for attorneys, they are comprehensive works, and may be helpful to a more in depth understanding of your topic. Bibliographies of the articles are often rich with citations to useful documents.
While both Legal Collection and LexisNexis Academic contain content from law journals, Lexis has other types of content, and its interface tends to be difficult for new users.
