Wildlife Law: American Law Reports

A companion research guide to the presentation by Professor Stefanie Pearlman, Sara Berggren, and Kristina Pease Hall

Selected American Law Reports (ALRs) Annotations Dealing with Wildlife

The American Law Reports (ALR) contain detailed discussions of specific areas of law, called "annotations." The ALRs are made up of three sets: American Law Reports, American Law Reports: Federal, and American Law Reports: International.  There are several series within the original and federal sets. The Schmid Law Library has print copies of these volumes that can be found in the stacks in the south side on the first floor of the library.  ALR annotations can also be found on Westlaw and Lexis.
