Abortion in the United States: A Compilation of Federal and State Laws, 2nd Edition Reviewed in Law Library Journal

AALL, Constitutional Law, Documentary History of the Legal Aspects of Abortion in the U.S., Family Law, Librarianship, State Law jstanley

Abortion in the United States: A Compilation of Federal and State Laws, 2nd ed.  by Tobe Liebert was recently reviewed by Sara Sampson in Law Library Journal!

Sampson writes: “This set provides a snapshot of the full text of all state (including the District of Columbia) abortion laws as they currently exist and some historical federal statutes. This includes the federal Hyde Amendment in its original (1976) and current (2011) forms. This is particularly helpful because, as provisions of appropriation acts, they do not appear in the U.S. Code. It also includes the vetoed Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 1995. While this compilation is convenient for today’s users, it may be invaluable to future scholars.

North Carolina Legal Research Guide

2010, State Law admin

Second Edition
By: Scott Childs and Nick Sexton

The main goal of this second edition is to broadly explain the structure of North Carolina government and to provide researchers with a list of sources for more detailed information. The amount of North Carolina legal information available on the Internet is staggering, although in many cases it is not comprehensive. Although there have been changes in the law and some structural changes in the organizations that produce legal information in North Carolina, the explosion of legal information available digitally, primarily via the Internet, is the obvious and most important change since the first edition was published. The authors identify traditional print and new digital sources of North Carolina legal information.
