Law and Government Information
In addition to holding a J.D. and an LL.M. and having taught Legal Writing and Research to law students, Enid Zafran has many years of experience in legal publishing. She directed indexing and editorial work at Banks-Baldwin Law Publishing Co. in Cleveland, OH, for 13 years. She worked at Prentice Hall Information Service as Editorial Director of Non-Tax Services. From January 1990-January 2002, she was the Director of Indexing Services at The Bureau of National Affairs, Inc. (BNA), in Washington, DC., overseeing a staff of 40 indexers.
Indexing Partners has made its mark in the field of legal indexing by winning contracts for work with state governments as well as working with all of the major legal publishers. We have indexed the administrative regulations of California, Oklahoma, Ohio, North Carolina, Illinois, and Indiana. In 2003-2004, we worked with the IRS to provide a standardized vocabulary and approach to the indexes of their various publications. We have also indexed the Bluebook guide to state government in Oregon for the past six years.
In addition to indexing U.S. and state law, we have worked on numerous titles dealing with international law. Ranging from the law and policy of specific countries to cross-country comparisons, these publications deal with topics as diverse as intellectual property, criminal law, trade, labor, and business.
We have written subject indexes for casebooks, textbooks, treatises, journals, forms books, and answer books. We also create tables of cases, tables of authorities, tables of statutes and rules, and other finding aids. My article on how to do tables in Indexing Specialties: Law, in fact, sets the standards for this type of work.
We also provide research and correction lists to reconcile variations in spelling or citation for the original material.
The subjects we have indexed most recently include:
Banking and finance
Employment and labor law
Intellectual property (copyright, trademarks, and patents)
