Legal periodical

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A legal periodical is a periodical about law. Legal periodicals include legal newspapers, law reviews, periodicals published by way of commerce, periodicals published by practitioner bodies, and periodicals concerned with a particular branch of the law.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

The obituaries and profiles in legal periodicals may be useful to historians and biographers.[8][9] Book reviews in legal periodicals may be useful to librarians.[10] There is a Book Review Index in the Index to Legal Periodicals.[11]
