Years in print:
The Central Law Journal was established in 1874 by Soule, Thomas & Wentworth, the editors being J.F. Dillon and S.D. Thompson, subsequently well-known judges. The ownership has passed successively to G.I. Jones, Judge Thompson, and W.H. Stevenson, and lastly to Mr. Soule, who is sole owner. J.D. Lawson was the second editor, and W.L. Murfree, Jr., is the present editor. It is published weekly, and the circulation is claimed to be second to that of no law journal in the United States. It contains twenty pages octavo.
