Your syllabus and textbook supply a ready list of topics. Search the databases listed below for the legal terms or phases, limiting by field to subject, abstract and then publication type newspaper, or magazine or trade journal. Skim the full text of articles to find quotes reflecting, analyzing or opining on the issue.
