West's Alabama Digest is an invaluable finding tool that summarizes court decisions found in the reporters and indexes points of law found in court decisions published each year. Classified by our attorney-editors, this title allows you to begin your research with whatever information is available, including:

    • A case name

    • The defendant or plaintiff's name

    • Legal concept

    • The facts of a specific situation

This publication includes:

    • Topic and Key Numbers to locate reported caselaw on your specific point of law

    • Digest paragraphs, classified to specific Key Numbers

    • Case citations in each digest paragraph that direct you to the full text

    • Library references and research notes that lead you to collateral materials in C.J.S. and other sources

    • Topics listed in alphabetical order and beginning with scope notes about subjects included and subjects excluded and covered by other topics

Features and benefits of this publication include:

    • The West Key Number System, which lets you determine with certainty if no state caselaw exists on a point, then allows you to easily expand your research to other jurisdictions. The Key Number System also allows you to find on-point cases from other jurisdictions fast.

    • Headnotes that crafted by West's attorney-editors to summarize the holdings of a judicial opinion, incorporating key facts and reasoning

    • The Descriptive Word Index, which indexes terms of art and legal terminology to unlock the door to relevant decisions

    • Words and Phrases volumes, which alphabetically list words or phrases judicially defined in the indexed cases

    • Library references to C.J.S. and other Thomson Reuters Westlaw publications • Translation tables that translate former Key Numbers to new Key Numbers, and new Key Numbers to former Key Numbers

    • Pocket parts and supplementary pamphlets that keep you informed of the most recent cases
