Law Library Journal

Since 1908, Law Library Journal (LLJ) has been the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Association of Law Libraries. Scholarly articles on law, legal materials, and librarianship are the mainstay of the Journal. Practice-oriented articles and historical records of the profession and Association are also included. LLJ is published quarterly (winter, spring, summer, and fall), and available as a digital-only publication, with a print on demand option.

The PDF edition of Law Library Journal is provided to anyone who would like access to its content and includes individual PDF files for each article within an issue.


The digital edition of Law Library Journal provides AALL members with access to the full LLJ archive on HeinOnline (Volume 1 – current) and it includes active links to cited content as part of the HeinOnline collections.*

If you have any questions or need help locating an article, please reach out to Heather Haemker, AALL director of marketing & communications.
