History[edit]

The National Law Review Vol. I No. 1 January 1888

The National Law Review on-line edition was developed in Chicago, Illinois by corporate attorney Jennifer Schaller and other legal and internet professionals in order to provide an easily accessible and reliable database of articles written by experts analyzing legal news and trends. The National Law Review print edition was founded in 1888 in Philadelphia by legal publishers Kay & Brother.[2]

The print edition of the National Law Review was a monthly scholarly law review which included sections such as Current Legal News, a Book Review section, a Digest of Important Decisions which summarized recent judicial decisions in various states, and a section devoted to Current Legal Thought organized by legal topic.[2] Historically, articles in law reviews were often considered a persuasive authority in American courts, though this influence is generally thought to be waning in recent years.[3] The on-line edition of the National Law Review has been described as more straightforward, practical and informative than a traditional law review, containing information of potential interest to both legal and business professionals [4] and it often serves as a reference source to other legal periodicals[5][6] and as a source on emerging American legal issues to mainstream media.[7]
