The American Bar Association publishes more than 1,000 books, journals, National Institute seminar materials and other substantive works annually, leveraging the expertise of its members as authors and contributors. Practitioners today rely on the ABA’s robust body of knowledge for timely coverage of emerging issues, subject treatises, practical guides, professional skill building, and even wellness advice.
Did you know that the PLRC is an archive for the ABA’s publications? Through this arrangement, the Law Library maintains a near complete collection in our “ABA Archives” on the third floor of the library (just past Government Documents by the treadmills). When you’re searching in NU Search, you’ll notice these materials have a special call number: B, ABA. Whether you’re seeking the latest edition of the Annotated Model Rules of Professional Conduct, a handbook with form templates and checklists, an update on a specific area of law, or tips for work life balance as an attorney, there is an ABA resource that can quickly provide you with the answers you need at the PLRC.
Search Northwestern’s library catalog, NU Search, for ‘American Bar Association’ as an author or publisher then limit your results to items at the Law Library, or click here to view ABA items at the PLRC published by the ABA in the last ten years. Bonus Tip: Search for your favorite ABA Section‘s items by adding the section’s name to a publisher name search, such as American Bar Association Business Law Section or American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution
