Legal commentaries provide up-to-date expert analysis of legislation, cases, and the corresponding legal materials related to an area of law. They can be a great starting point in legal research as it provides an overview of the law and details of the key legislation and cases on a given topic. Commentary services might be available in print as looseleaf services or online via databases.
