PHIL 378 / PG 348: Philosophy of Law: American Jurisprudence

American Jurisprudence in Lexis

American Jurisprudence 2nd Edition, a staple of law libraries, is an authoritative legal encyclopedia. This is an excellent resource to get background on a broad range of legal topics. 

American Jurisprudence is available Nexis Uni, which is helpful in the sense that you don't need to worry about paging through a print edition, but is troublesome in that Nexis Uni is difficult for new users.
