Authorised Law Reports: United States – State & Regional Reporters

Authorised Law Reports of Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, United Kingdom and United States jurisdictions

United States Official State Reports

Many states have their own official state reporters, which publish decisions from one or more of their state's courts. In addition, there are also seven Regional Reporters which cover several states each. Some smaller states have stopped publishing their own official reporters and have designated the Regional Reporters as their official reporter. Where a case appears in both reporters, either citation may be used.
