Legal Newspapers

Posted by Library Blog on 04/07/2010 at 12:00 AM

For those getting ready to take a bar exam or two, it is recommended that you read back and current issues of the legal newspaper(s) published for the state in which you plan on taking the bar exam.  Summaries of important court decisions are reported in legal newspapers and a significant case can be a source of inspiration for a bar examiner’s essay question! 

The Law Library subscribes to ALM publishers’ Connecticut Law Tribune, Legal Intelligencer (Pennsylvania), and New York Law Journal.  For those taking the New Jersey bar exam, you can read ALM’s New Jersey Law Journal.

The Law Library also has subscriptions to Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly.  These are published by Dolan Media Company.

Current issues of some legal newspapers are on the newspaper stands in the Law Library.  Back issues of these newspapers along with issues of other newspapers are shelved in the Reserve collection.

If you need assistance with locating these newspapers, do not hesitate to ask the Librarian on duty at the Reference Desk or the staff at the Circulation Desk.  Happy reading!
