American Law Reports: New Section on Predecessor Publications

An attorney asked me to find “the predecessors to the ALR,” and that turned out to be about seven sets published by the Lawyers Co-operative Publishing Company and Bancroft-Witney covering 1878 to 1918.   Print volumes are still available in a surprising number of academic law libraries, and Westlaw has the last and arguably most notable set — Lawyers’ Reports Annotated (LRA) — in one of its Rise of American Law databases  (ROAL-JUR).   The American Law Reports entry now has a new section called “Predecessor Publications” that covers these publications and where to find them.

  1. Thanks to Paul Richert, Law Librarian and Professor of Law at The University of Akron, for letting me know that the predecessor publications are available on LLMC Digital!
