Introduction

The National Law Journal provides timely legal information of national importance to attorneys that other publications don't, including:

  • Federal Circuit Court Decisions. The Circuit court is the appellate level of the federal court system. Decisions of the 11 circuits and the D.C.circuit often become the law of the land and can be cited by attorneys throughout the nation. A decision in one circuit may be cited by attorneys arguing a case in a different circuit completely across the country.

  • Verdicts. Hand picked verdicts of national consequence appear weekly in The National Law Journal. Attorneys throughout the country are informed through our verdicts page of the year's Top 10 verdicts as well as unique and important verdicts that cross state boundaries.

  • Practitioners Columns. Each week, The National Law Journal features in-depth analyses of critical issues affecting today's legal profession from well known practioners. 

  • Coverage of legislative issues. The National Law Journal features experts' interpretations of how laws affect business and the courts so that attorneys in law firms and in house counsel are kept well informed.

  • Legal news from the business and private sectors. Each week The National Law Journal reports on the significance of law related events from Corporate America to hometown USA.
