A Guide To Arizona Practice Materials at the Cracchiolo Law Library

Jacquelyn Kasper
Reference & Government Documents Librarian

Scope: Sources of materials for practice in Arizona include continuing legal education publications, handbooks, manuals, treatises, law reviews, journals and legal newspapers, and directories. The following lists are categorized by broad subject. Note: most books are updated either by pocket parts or looseleaf filings, or are annually revised editions.

Westlaw provides online access to its print Arizona Practice series (AZPRAC) and legal forms books (AZ-LF). Lexis does not have its Arizona treatises in its current database. The State Bar of Arizona provides online access to most of its publications through an attorney's membership. Loislaw, a commercial vendor, provides electronic access to several State Bar publications.

General Civil Practice | Commerical Law | Real Estate Law | Domestic Relations | Criminal Law | Personal Injury | Estate Planning/Senior issues | Arizona Legal History | Arizona Law Reviews, Journals, Newspapers | Arizona Government | Internet Sources
