After becoming interested in the HBO show Boardwalk Empire, a show about Prohibition in the late 1920s and 30s, I was inspired to research Prohibition in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Bar Association was apparently so impressed by Fastcase that it added Fastcase as one of the benefits of bar membership, replacing Casemaker. Now the UNC Law Library has added a subscription, as well.

We have what? Nomolexikon: A Law-Dictionary from 1670

Black’s Law Dictionary was first published in 1891 and it is widely used by students and laypeople who wish to learn about the law and its specialized jargon. It is currently in its ninth (9th) edition of publication. Because it is so widely used and notable, Black’s Law Dictionary can be used as a secondary legal authority and is often referenced in legal briefs, memos and court opinions.

However, before Black’s Law Dictionary, there was no central authority for legal definitions and scholars often published their own dictionaries to publicize and try to make uniform various definitions. Of the many dictionaries that have, the oldest one that the UNC Law Library holds is from 1670.
