Here's a helpful tool to help you decipher unfamiliar or obscure abbreviations of legal reporters and journals.
The Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations allows you to search for the meaning of abbreviations for English language legal publications, from the British Isles, the Commonwealth and the United States, including those covering international and comparative law. Many major foreign language law publications are also included in the database.
The database mainly covers law reports and legal periodicals but some other legal publications are also included. The Index is under continuous development with new abbreviations and titles being added on a regular basis.
Hat tip to the law librarians at Yale Law School.
