Librarian's Note:

JMLC began publishing in 1969.  Works appearing in JMLC are included in the Index to Legal Periodicals, Current Law Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, LegalTrac, PAIS, and OMNIFILE Full Text. JMLC is available electronically by subscription as part of the Hein-on-Line collection and EBSCO's Electronic Journals Service. The commercial legal data bases, LEXIS and Westlaw, offer subscribers only partial collections of JMLC. LEXIS (file name: MARLWC) purports to offer the contents of the JMLC since 1995 (i.e., Vol. 26, No.1 et seq.). Westlaw (file name: JMARLC) purports to offer the contents of JMLC issues beginning with those of Volume 27 (i.e., since 1996).

The texts of articles appearing in past issues of the JMLC are sometimes republished on the INTERNET by their authors, with the permission of the Journal. As they come to our attention, we will add them to the list of links offered below. Occasionally, other miscellaneous documents will be made available.
