The National Law Journal, a U.S. periodical founded in 1978 by Jerry Finkelstein, as a "sibling newspaper" of the New York Law Journal, that itself was founded in 1888.[1] The National Law Journal reports legal information of national importance to attorneys, including federal circuit court decisions, verdicts, practitioners' columns, coverage of legislative issues and legal news for the business and private sectors. The Journal releases its list of the "100 Most Influential Lawyers in America" once every few years.[2][3]

The once tabloid-sized weekly newspaper is now a monthly magazine that publishes online daily and is owned by American Lawyer Media, ALM.[4][5]

In September 2017, Lisa Helem was promoted to editor in chief.[6]
