Top tips for law research

Legal literature can be divided into primary materials, which are official written sources of the law such as Acts of the Oireachtas and International Treaties, and secondary materials, which include other types of legal literature like books and journals.

Primary materials are the formal records of the law, while secondary materials provide additional information and commentary on legal issues.

Both types of legal literature are important for understanding and interpreting the law.
