Blazing Trails in a New Kentucky Wilderness: Early Kentucky Case Law Digests

Kurt X. Metzmeier, University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law

Abstract

The three stages of the history of case law digest publishing in Kentucky are discussed: the early period where digests were the product of individualistic lawyer-scholars; a middle period where state and regional legal publishers began to professionalize digest making; and the final commercial triumph of West’s American Digest System. Appendixes provide a bibliography and a chronology of Kentucky digests.
