Redesigned! The Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations

Check out the new Cardiff Index to Legal Abbreviations page!  The redesign makes it easier to search for the full title of a law publication if you have an unknown abbreviation.   For example, if you were looking for the UK Pinochet Case at [2000] 1 AC 147 and did not know what “AC” stood for, you could enter it into the Cardiff Index and find out “AC” = Law Reports, Appeal Cases.  If you have a title of a law publication, you can also search the Cardiff Index to find possible abbreviations for it.  If you haven’t used the Cardiff Index before, here’s a description:

“This database allows you to search for the meaning of abbreviations for English language legal publications, from the British Isles, the Commonwealth and the United States, including those covering international and comparative law…A wide selection of major foreign language law publications is also included. Publications from over 295 jurisdictions are featured in the Index.”
