Secondary sources are publications that describe, comment on, or analyze the law (as opposed to primary sources, which contain the actual text of the law). Secondary sources can be valuable at the beginning of a research project, as they can provide an overview of an unfamiliar subject area, introduce key terminology, and provide citations to important primary source materials. Books and journal articles are good places to begin conducting legal research.
