Corpus Juris Secundum (C.J.S.)
Corpus Juris Secundum (C.J.S.) is published by West and gives far more case citations (and is more difficult to use) than American Jurisprudence (encyclopedia). Attention is paid to providing citations that highlight jurisdictional differences. C.J.S. gives cross-references to other West publications and to West topic and key numbers. The print version is updated annually by pocket parts, and a new general index is published annually. This index is very general indeed, often pointing the researcher only to the volume. Check the volume specific index for more detailed references. The index provides access by person, place, thing, facts, and legal topic. It is important to note that while C.J.S. is published by West and uses a system of topics (alphabetically arranged) and section numbers, its topic and section number system is not the same as the Topic and Key Number System used in West digests.
See legal enciclopedies and American Jurisprudence (encyclopedia).
