Changes coming to the ABA Journal website – No Public Access From This Point On .. Only Paid Members

The ABA writes..

Since the creation of, our digital content has been available to everyone—whether you were a member of the American Bar Association or not. But the Journal is, at heart, a benefit of ABA membership, largely funded by our dues-paying members.

In the coming weeks, the Journal will begin to provide our premium content on exclusively to ABA members. Members can access that content by simply signing in with the same email and password used to access

Nonmembers will have access to a limited number of stories each month and have the option to access the entire site by signing up for one of the affordable membership options available from the ABA. Members will not only get access to premium Journal content but also a first-rate CLE library that allows them to fulfill their annual requirements; access to premium content on; opportunities for networking; and much more.

We realize this will be a new experience for longtime Journal readers, and we’re here to help guide you through the new process. Questions can be directed to ABA member services at [email protected], 800-285-2221 or 312-988-5000. Or reach out to me directly at [email protected].

We promise to continue our commitment to covering news relevant to lawyers at all stages of their careers—from the day a future lawyer takes the LSAT, through law school and the bar, as they embark on a career to the day they retire.

And we look forward to doing it for another century.
