UNB Law Journal Index, 1947-1987

First published in 1947, the University of New Brunswick Law Journal (U.N.B.L.J.) / Revue de droit de l'Université du Nouveau-Brunswick (R.D.U.N.B.) is one of the oldest student-run legal publications in Canada.  It has a circulation of over 1000 copies, with distribution to students and faculty, alumni, members of the bar and law libraries worldwide. U.N.B.L.J. is an annual refereed publication devoted to the consideration of current legal issues, problems and philosophies through the presentation of articles, research notes, comments and reviews. The journal is accessible by subscription and electronically in full text through the following databases:

  • HeinOnline (starting with Vol. 1, 1947)
  • WestlawNext Canada (starting with vol. 42, 1993; select coverage)
  • Lexis Advance Quicklaw (starting with volume 60, 2010)
  • Index to Legal Periodicals and Books Full-text (starting with volume 31, 1982 to volume 62, 2011; select coverage)
  • LegalTrac (starting with volume 55, 2006)
  • Canadian Periodicals Index Quarterly (starting with volume 55, 2006)

The journal is also indexed in numerous legal and non-legal periodical indexes.

Prior to the journal's being indexed in standard periodical indexes, there was no systematic method of finding references to its contents.  Thus, in 1988, the editorial board commissioned a cumulative index to be prepared, covering Vol. 1, 1947 through and including Vol. 36, 1987.  Until now, this index has been available only in printed form.  Because of the limited availability of the printed index, our library has prepared a digitized version for the use of scholars and the public.

The volume includes seven indexes:  author; books reviewed; comments and notes; editorials; photographs; subjects; and titles.


We would like to thank Prof. John McEvoy, UNB Faculty of Law and former Faculty Advisor to the U.N.B.L.J., for his input during the planning of this project, and Matt Hiltz, former UNB law student, for his scanning and editing contributions.
