Historic Ohio Legal Newspapers

Welcome to my library of historic Ohio legal newspapers! Links lead to digitized issues of some Ohio legal newspapers.

The Ohio Law Journal was published weekly at Columbus, and it contains cases tables, updates to law, etc. It combined publications and was later called The Weekly Law Bulletin and Ohio Law Journal. The Ohio Legal News published court dockets, tables of cases, and articles about legislation in Ohio and other U.S. locations that impacted legal topics. The law catalog at Berkeley Law School indicates that the Ohio Legal News was published from 1894 through 1900, so this collection contains the publication’s full run. The Ohio Law Bulletin, a weekly newspaper, printed tables of cases, statutes, etc. The run is incomplete for the Ohio Law Bulletin. This sampling gives an idea of the content that legal newspapers contain.

Also see my Historic Ohio Statutory Law page, the Historic Ohio Case Law Digests page, and the blog post that I wrote introducing the Ohio law pages.
