Abstract

The bibliographic apparatus used to facilitate legal research has the power to influence the way researchers think about the law, and thus the law itself. Mr. Dabney explores the possibility of this influence in West's Key Number System, and discusses the role of literary warrant.

Keywords: key number, key numbers, West, legal research, literary warrant
