LACBA.org Highlights: Exploring the Los Angeles Lawyer Archives

Los Angeles Lawyer magazine’s home page is the most visited page at LACBA.org, making it one of the most valued of LACBA’s many membership benefits.

Los Angeles Lawyer articles, written by attorneys, address substantive law issues that educate and inform other lawyers about the law. The magazine is a goldmine, providing the means to stay smart about specific practice areas. 

The online archives reach back more than 10 years, and the search tools enable the user to find precise information or specific articles based on key words or on a combination of keywords, author name, year, and subject.

These two separate search tools allow you to choose how to find your particular needle in this voluminous haystack.

The distinct keyword search page enables you to type in a specific phrase. For example, to research Rule 3-310 of the Rules of Professional Conduct, type in the phrase “conflict of interest” in the keyword search form. This search results in a list of several articles going back to 1994, with detailed references to numerous useful cases.

If you wish to search for even more precise information, you can also use the search tool that enables you to combine keywords, author name, year, and subject. You set up your search criteria in this form as indicated in the illustration:

  • Type in “rule 3-310” in the keyword box.
  • Leave the year blank.
  • Select “Amberg” as the author.
  • Select “ethics” as the subject.

No matter what your practice area, you can comb the Los Angeles Lawyer archives with these easy-to-use search tools to find a plethora of detailed information on diverse areas of the law.
