Information resources and services for LIR 863: Law of Labor Management Relations
Last Updated: Sep 19, 2011
You will be reading and citing landmark and significant, as well as the most recently published, federal court cases and NLRB decisions. Since no secondary source is completely up to date, only primary sources will be able to lead you to the most recent cases. Lexis Nexis Academic and the BNA Labor and Employment Law Library are good sources of the text of court cases, including recent cases. NLRB Decisions are not included in Lexis-Nexis Academic and are often only available in BNA in abbreviated form, so you may need to read the full decision in the official NLRB volumes, which are available online as well as in print.
- BNA's Labor and Employment Law Library
At the BNA website, select the Labor and Employment Law Library from the drop down box. When prompted, enter the username and password provided by the LIR Librarian. Restrict searches to "Labor Cases" and "NLRB Decisions" to retrieve relevant course cases and NLRB decisions.
Beginning with Volume 1, the full-text of NLRB decisions are available online. The NLRB also makes available online its classified index of Board and court decisions through CITENET.
- In Print
Decisions and Orders of the NLRB
Location: Main Library - Govt. Docs (3 West), Non-Circulating
Call #: LR 1.8
Full-text of NLRB decisions rather than the abbreviated versions published by BNA and CCH. Cross-reference tables are in the front of each volume matching the decision number with the starting page. There is usually a time gap of several years before a bound volume is issued.
- LexisNexis Academic
Use the U.S. Legal Section. To find court cases, use the Federal & State Cases Section. To search the U.S. Code, use the Federal & State Code Section, and to search regulations, search in both the CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) and FR (Federal Register). NOTE: NLRB decisions are not included in LexisNexis Academic.
