Law Bulletin
160 years strong
  • Reaching 160 years of existence takes hard work, sound planning and a little bit of luck.
  • We talked with five of our readers — a managing partner, a professor, a mediator, a law school dean and a professionalism educator — about the importance of the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin in the Chicago legal community as the newspaper turns 160. Plus get a look at how the Law Bulletin is made.
  • Much has changed in the city and the legal community in the 160 years since this newspaper was first published, including a judicial and legal power shift in Illinois. Indeed, its very arrival on the scene was an indicator that lawyers practicing in Chicago, already a burgeoning city by the 1850s, would usher in a new epicenter of legal business.
  • One example of the change Illinois and its legal community went through during the 19th century was a case Abraham Lincoln was hired on, Hurd v. Rock Island Railroad Co.
  • From Gettysburg to Apollo 11, the last 160 years have seen tremendous changes, and the Law Bulletin has been around through it all, growing from a humble newsletter to an award-winning paper. A timeline tracks the company’s progress and the march of U.S., Illinois and Chicago history.
