Legal Academia

JURIST: The Law Professor’s Network

This is a massive site from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Law professors can view syllabi for courses taught by law faculty, updated job postings for law faculty positions, information regarding academic conferences, posted conference papers, online articles, legal book reviews and links to the latest legal news and law reviews. Another unusual offering is space on the server to publish. There is a Subject Guides section, which is a great starting point for research on a topic. There are many other valuable offerings on this site.

The University Law Review Project

This site is sponsored by the Coalition of Online Law Journals, a worldwide project to make law reviews accessible via the Internet. The law reviews are categorized by topic, noting if full text or abstract is provided. A search engine is available that searches full text law journals on the web. Additionally, a free email service will forward abstracts of new articles just released on the Internet. There is partial access to the Blue Book via this site.

Tarlton’s Contents Pages from Law Reviews and Other Scholarly Journals

Tarlton’s page offers a good method for current awareness of legal literature. The table of contents for over 750 U.S. and international law reviews are available. The web site maintains the most recent three months, and does not maintain an archive. There is a search engine available allowing keyword searching. Users can browse a list of the journal titles covered by this site.

The Avalon Project at Yale Law School: Documents in Law, History and Diplomacy

Yale Law School provides digital historical documents relevant to law, economics, politics, diplomacy and government. Researchers can locate the Federalist Papers (all 85 in full-text), the Hague Conventions, and materials relating to the Nuremburg trials. Documents cover from the pre-18th century through the 20th century. A researcher will find such diverse sources as the Laws of William the Conqueror, and the Charters of the Thirteen Colony states. The site is searchable or can be browsed by author, subject and title.
