Legal Publications in Hawaii

Asian-Pacific Law and Policy Journal (APLPJ)

Edited by law students at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii, APLPJ is a web-based legal journal covering issues in Asia and the Pacific Rim. In addition to its native web format (1999- ), the journal is indexed in the following online archives:

Hawaii Bar Journal

The Hawaii Bar Journal is the official publication of the Hawaii State Bar Association.  It is a monthly publication in a magazine format, and an irregular publication that is smaller (yellow and white) and more like a law journal.  The latter one is referred to as "Issue 13."  Issue 13 is funded by grants from the Cades Foundation and has not been published every year.  The two publications have exactly the same titles, and exactly the same call number in our collection:  K8.A94.  In addition, they are shelved together even though the monthly publication is much larger, thinner and a slick glossy.  These publications are often misshelved so you may need to get someone on the library staff to assist you.

You can find the monthly publication indexed in the following online archives:

Issue 13, however, is not indexed on Westlaw or Casemaker, but appears to be indexed on both LexisNexis products as of this posting (Jan 2011).

In addition to publishing two issues each year, the University of Hawaiʻi Law Review hosts a biannual symposium that brings together scholars, practitioners, and distinguished jurists.  In addition to its print format (K25 .N64), this publication is indexed in the following online archives:
