The Library would like to announce the publication of the Arizona Legal Research Guide. This newest guide is a compilation of numerous helpful resources for different types of research on Arizona's laws, cases, regulations, and practice. The guide includes free resources proven to be very useful in real practice when costly subscription databases are no longer readily available.
There is also historical information and links to other compilations of resources expanding the materials available to you. Take a look for yourself. You can access the guide here: http://researchguides.phoenixlaw.edu/ArizonaLegalResearch
Alison Ewing's expertise in Arizona legal research was crucial to the composition of this guide.

On April 25, 2013, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) introduced the Phoenix Law Review Victim's Rights Issue Volume 5 during a Congressional hearing on the proposed National Victims' Bill of Rights. You can view the special edition on HeinOnline.
The Phoenix Law Review members worked on this special edition of the journal related to the new proposed national Victim's Rights Amendment. The law review board also traveled to Washington last April to attend the first of many hearings on the bill.
Phoenix School of Law's Adjunct Professor Steve Twist worked with the Law Review group on the special edition and arranged for them to meet the Arizona delegation to Congress.
View the hearing here.
