New York Law School
This New York law School project provides full-text law review articles. Alternatively, you can access by choosing "Library services" link from the Law School homepage, then "Law Reviews Online Content". The site offers an alphabetical list of law reviews by publication title. For instance, ABA Journal. Simply click on the ABA Journal link, and you'll access the most current issue of the journal, on the official American Bar Association web site. You'll notice, in the ABA journal's "Recent Issues" links, where the user can choose from issues back to 2004. The highlight of this resource is that it offers free journal content, some in PDF format. If you choose, for example, Michigan Law Review, you'll notice a "View PDF" link next to each article title. The site includes links to any companion issues that accompany a particular law review. You'll see "Forum" listed in the publication list under Harvard Law Review, which is the HLR companion publication. There is also a keyword search box, which allows the user to search across journal titles.
