The new Comprehensive Index of Legal Reports will house all reports available on our website. This will also be the exclusive location to find reports written before 2011, including some of our more popular reports such as:

The reports listed on the Comprehensive Index page are divided into specific topics designed to point you to the reports of greatest interest and relevance. Each report listed is under only one topic and several topics are not yet filled (“forthcoming”).  We plan to add many reports from our archives to this page over the next few months, filling in all of the topics.

The Current Legal Topics page will now only contain the most current reports such as:

The list of reports also includes a short description explaining what you will find in each report.

No links will be harmed in this change, so any links you have created to individual reports will continue to work. Just remember to add as a place to find research, especially of a historical nature, and to find recently written reports.  Also, keep watching the blog and RSS feeds for news of the many archived reports that will be added in the near future!

Update: This was originally published as a guest post by Jennifer González. The author information has been updated to reflect that Jennifer is now an In Custodia Legis blogger.
