Immigration Law: Assignment Tips

1. Use the Library's catalogue to search for books on immigration law using, for example, the following keywords: Australia? and ?migration in a Basic Search.

2. The databases AGIS Plus Text, APA Full Text and Multicultural Australia and Immigration Studies contain up-to-date journal articles on many topics including immigration. Select the databases and then try the following Standard Search:

If articles are unavailable in full text, try the e-Journal Portal for an electronic version and the catalogue for print.

3. LawLex contains links to Explanatory Memoranda and Hansard - 2nd reading speeches for recent legislation.


4. Factiva is a database of newspaper articles and these may be useful for background information. An example of a search for mention of government policy:
visas and 457 and policy

All the best for your assignment!
