Minnesota Legal Periodical Index (MLPI)- Publications Indexed

All items of general or historical interest are indexed.

Note that each publication has its own identity which impacts on the type of articles included, e.g., Minnesota Law Review provides lengthy analysis of cases or subjects of academic interest; The Barrister reports news items with a few brief practical articles. For publications (such as Minnesota Law & Politics) which have articles of varying length, the phrase "[news note]" following an article title distinguishes brief items from longer articles. Where article titles are ambiguous or misleading, the indexer adds terms within [brackets].

Excluded from the indexes are brief announcements pertaining to people or firms, letters to the editor, photographs, and president/editor pages. Also excluded are summaries of cases which the publications include as a current awareness service.

Listed below is further information about each publication.
