The MLE can be found in print in most larger law libraries that are open to the public, including academic law libraries, the Maryland State Law Library, and the county circuit court law libraries. The MLE is also available on Westlaw and Lexis.

Journals and Periodicals

The Daily Record is Maryland’s daily newspaper providing coverage of legal, business, and government news.  It is available in law libraries, by individual subscription, and on Lexis and Westlaw.

The Maryland Bar Journal is a bi-monthly magazine published by the Maryland State Bar Association. Each issue focuses on a subject area related to Maryland law. The Journal is available in law libraries, by subscription, and on Westlaw.  The publication’s Web site contains table of contents for the current issue and additional information.  

Each of Maryland's two law schools, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and University of Baltimore School of Law, publishes several student-edited scholarly journals. Although the scope of articles published in these journals is not limited to Maryland legal topics, some articles deal with Maryland issues. The journals are variously available on Lexis, Westlaw, and Hein Online, as well as in paper format in major law libraries.
