Gender and the Law Research Guide

This guide covers gender and the law, legal feminism and feminist jurisprudence.

Case Law and Legislation

The primary databases at Georgetown for case law and current Federal legislation are LexisWestlaw and Bloomberg Law.

All of these databases collect primary law resources into discrete topic areas, allowing for a more refined search, such as family law, healthcare law, and public health law.  These discrete collections can be found within the "Practice Area" tab. 

To identify resources for state case law and legislation use the Library's state law guides.

ProQuest Congressional is the Library's primary database for legislative materials and legislative histories. HeinOnline also provides access to various types of Congressional documents and legislative histories, and it is the primary database for historic legislation.

Specialized Collections

See HeinOnline's Women & the Law (Peggy) collection, which provides full-text access of primary law and secondary sources in the multi-disciplinary area of women and the law.

Cornell Law School's Women and Justice Project identifies both domestic and international primary case law in the Women and Justice Collection.
