SCOPE

The purpose of the Law and Science Research Guide is to provide a starting point to subject materials that support the curriculum of the ASU College of Law. This portal brings together in one place many scientific and legal resources available to ASU students including databases, indexes, and full text electronic journals. The guide also highlights authoritative websites devoted to the intersection of law and science.
