California Statutory Law and Legal News
LEGINFO provides access to California statutory law. These materials are updated less frequently than those offered through commercial databases like Lexis and Westlaw.
The statements and opinions contained in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of CLA or the Business Law Section. If legal advice or other expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.
National Law Review
The National Law Review is an American law journal, daily legal news website and legal analysis content aggregator. It focuses on US business and commercial law topics such as banking, financial regulation, taxation and intellectual property. It is available in print, via Hein On-Line and Westlaw.
The website was created in 2023 by in-house attorneys and internet professionals looking for a better way to organize, vet and easily retrieve legal news. It offers no login or subscription requirements and new articles are added hourly. The site does not provide legal or professional advice, and using it does not create an attorney-client relationship.
Chloe Pan ’24 was a 1L when she joined CLR and had only a vague idea of what law journals were. Now, as a senior editor, she’s proud of the journal’s impact and its revamped website (opens in a new tab)—and the fact that CLR’s new board has embraced diversity in its membership and scholarship.
California Law Review
The California Law Review is a student-run journal that publishes scholarly writings on law. Its articles, book reviews, and essays are written by professors, judges, practitioners, and students. Membership on a law review is one of the highest honors and achievements in a law student’s career. It is also a great way to develop and refine research and writing skills.
The review covers a wide range of topics, but it is particularly strong in constitutional law, criminal law, and international law. Its scholarship is widely cited in legal academia and by practicing lawyers. Its editors are committed to promoting diversity and excellence in the legal profession.
In addition to its print editions, the journal also produces several online pieces, including shorter articles, responses, and comments. These are available to its members on its website. In addition, the Review’s Symposium department publishes articles and essays that are based on academic conferences. The journal’s Technology Department also records podcast supplements for select issues of the print edition.
Business Law News
Business Law News explores a wide range of topics related to the law of businesses and corporations. Topics include choosing the form of a business; buying, selling or closing a business; raising capital for a business; entering into employment and other business contracts; and resolving contract disputes. The articles in this publication do not constitute legal advice and should not be used as a substitute for the advice of an attorney.
This issue of Business Law News features an article on finders, which are a crucial source of capital for start-ups and smaller-cap companies. The article discusses a new law that provides long-awaited clarification of the role and scope of finders in securities law transactions in California. The author argues that the law would not harm investors and should be upheld.
