Gale Announces Release of Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, today announced the release of Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources, 1620-1926, the fourth installment in the Making of Modern Law legal history archives.

Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources, 1620-1926, is a fully searchable digital archive. Of interest to law libraries and historians of American history, and designed to complement Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises, 1800-1926, it is sourced chiefly from the Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale University, with additional materials provided by the Law Library of Congress.

“With 1.85 million pages, comprising approximately 1,350 titles and 2,225 volumes, Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources is a virtual gold mine of information for legal historians,” said Jim Draper, Gale’s vice president and publisher. “The content found in this product represents materials not held at most libraries. Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources makes this valuable content accessible at users’ desktops.”

The three previous components in the series, Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises, 1800-1926; Making of Modern Law: U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs, 1832-1978; and Making of Modern Law: Trials, 1600-1926 are considered essential resources in the legal community. This fourth component adds further depth to this series.
