Bibliographies and research guides do some of the research for you! They're usually a list of articles and books on a specific topic. They can save you a lot of time in your research. Human rights law is an area that offers a wide range of bibliographies, both general and topic-specific (trafficking, crimes of honour, human rights in Asia, etc.)
