As the name implies, the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin is Chicago’s premier daily legal newspaper. Since 1854 lawyers have been relying on this newspaper for important legal information. It is an absolute must-read for all attorneys practicing in Chicago…and for law students.
The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin covers all the important legal stories from every state, federal and appellate court in Illinois. Reading the Law Bulletin is a great way to stay abreast of new legal developments in the state. The newspaper reports on key court decisions, proposed legislation, law firm hiring trends and legal education. It also contains columns with analysis of new developments from local attorneys, including many JMLS professors.
The Law Bulletin can also serve as a great job search resource. Before you go on your next job interview, be sure to search the newspaper for any mentions of the law firm or attorney you will be meeting with.
Unlike most daily newspapers that are published in the early dawn hours, the Law Bulletin comes out in the late afternoon so it can report on the happenings of the day. Subscribers receive a daily email at approximately 4:00 summarizing that day’s headlines. The good news is that law students have FREE electronic access.
