Citations to Annotations


Note: Through a joint venture with Shepard's, Lawyers Cooperative Publishing makes Citations for Annotations available to its customers. The LCP edition is distinctively bound in olive to match its annotation product line. LCP sells and services these subscriptions.

What Sources Can Be Shepardized

Search Results (Citing Sources)

Benefits/Unique Coverage/Risks of Not Using

  • Annotations as published in A.L.R. (3d, 4th and 5th Series), A.L.R. Fed. and L.E.2d
  • Federal and state cases can also be Shepardized. For cases, the search results will be limited to annotation citations.
Search results for annotations will include citations to:
  • U.S. Supreme Court decisions (as published in U.S., S. Ct., L.E.)
  • Lower federal court decisions
  • State court decisions as published in regional reporters
  • Articles in selected leading law reviews
  • Annotations

Search results for cases will only include citations to annotations.

A citations service designed for use with A.L.R., A.L.R. Fed. and L.E.2d annotations. Annotations are surveys of the law, including past developments, current law and probable future trends. They are used by many attorneys because annotations can "jump-start" legal research projects by providing quick access to leading cases. By Shepardizing an annotation, the researcher can see at a glance where that annotation has been cited in judicial decisions from all state and federal jurisdictions, as well as in subsequent annotations. This can quickly provide valuable information that would be missed if only the cases themselves are Shepardized. Citations for Annotations also allows the researcher to Shepardize federal and state court decisions to see whether a particular decision has been covered in an annotation. This information collects in one convenient place the annotation citing references that are included in numerous other Shepard's products.

Available: Print (Shepard's and LCP editions), LEXIS.

Code of Federal Regulations Citations


What Sources Can Be Shepardized

Search Results (Citing Sources)

Benefits/Unique Coverage/Risks of Not Using

  • Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (all titles)
  • Presidential Proclamations
  • Executive Orders
  • Reorganization Plans
  • U.S. Supreme Court decisions (as published in U.S., S. Ct., L.E.)
  • Lower federal court decisions
  • State court decisions as published in regional reporters
  • Articles in selected leading law reviews
  • Annotations

CFR contains all regulations of federal agencies. Federal regulation is so all-pervasive that CFR provisions are frequently at issue in litigation. Just as one would Shepardize a statute to verify its status as precedent and to obtain citations for cases that have cited the statute, researchers need to know whether a CFR provision has been held invalid or unconstitutional, and how a CFR provision has been interpreted by the courts. Shepard's unique date identification system shows the year of the CFR provision being cited or the date of decision if the court doesn't cite a specific edition. This saves research time because CFR is frequently amended and the date identifiers allow a researcher to quickly locate cases dealing with the provision being Shepardized. Code of Federal Regulations Citations also covers regulations promulgated by the President: Presidential Proclamations, Executive Orders and Reorganization Plans. Coverage of these Presidential materials is unique. Some titles of CFR can be Shepardized in a specialized citator, e.g., Title 26 in Federal Tax Citator, but Code of Federal Regulations Citations is the only publication where all of CFR can be Shepardized.

Shepard's Acts and Cases by Popular Name


How It Works Benefits/Unique Coverage/Risks of Not Using

Shepard's Acts and Cases by Popular Name is a reference tool that provides citation information for statutes and cases that are commonly referred to by popular name.

If you know a state or federal statute only by name ("Pine Creek Scenic Rivers Act" or "Pilot Records Improvement Act of 1996"), you can use this handy indexing system to quickly find its citation. Similarly, you can use Acts and Cases to find lists of citations for statutes dealing with a specific topic ("Lemon Law" or "Water Conservation"). Constitutional provisions ("Equal Suffrage Amendment") are also included.

If you know a case by subject area ("School Desegregation"), doctrine ("Fruit-of-the-Poisonous-Tree") or popular name ("Miranda"), you can find its citation in Acts and Cases.

Shepard's Acts and Cases by Popular Name is widely used by attorneys, paralegals, librarians, law students and laypersons as a starting point for legal research. If you know only a scrap of information about a statute or a case, Acts and Cases can help you find its citation, which is the all-important "address" that allows you to find the statute or case in a published code or case reporter, and to Shepardize the statute or case in the pertinent Shepard's citator.
