Blazing Trails in a New Kentucky Wilderness: Early Kentucky Case Law Digests
Law Library Journal (2001)
  • Kurt X. Metzmeier
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.
