Duhaime's Legal Citations

D.L.J. - Duke Law Journal


Initially, the Duke Bar Journal (Duke B. J.), volumes 1 through 6. Title changed to Duke Law Journal as of Volume 7 (1957).

Still sometimes referred to by the outdated legal citation of Duke L.J.

The publisher is the Duke University School of Law, Durham, North Carolina (USA). That publisher proposed this statement of scope of the Duke Law Journal as of 2014:

"The first issue of what was to become the Duke Law Journal was published in March 1951 as the Duke Bar Journal. Created to provide a medium for student expression, the Duke Bar Journal consisted entirely of student-written and student-edited work until 1953, when it began publishing faculty contributions.

"To reflect the inclusion of faculty scholarship, the Duke Bar Journal became the Duke Law Journal in 1957."
