page 6-3: The New Jersey State Constitution, by Robert F. Williams (2d ed., Oxford Univ. Press, 2012) contains an historical essay and the text of the 1947 constitution with commentary that traces the origin of each clause to its source in the earlier constitutions and mentions major court decisions construing the clause. Also included is a bibliographical essay.
page 6-5, third paragraph: Extensive amendments to the Constitution of 1844 were proposed by a Constitutional Commission in 1873 and approved in 1875; the proceedings and reports of that Commission and other documentation on those amendments are compiled in a book entitled "Traces of Its Labors": The Constitutional Commission, The Legislature, and Their Influence on the New Jersey Constitution, 1873-1875, by Peter J. Mazzei and Robert F. Williams, published by the Office of Legislative Services in 2012, and available online at http://camlaw.rutgers.edu/statecon/publications/book.pdf.
page 7-8, under E.Free public access New Jersey Administrative Code and New Jersey Register: The publicly accessible version of the New Jersey Administrative Code is about a month less current than the commercially available Lexis version, but is otherwise identical to the commercial version in appearance and functionality, and is accompanied by free and completely current access to the New Jersey Register, so that the public user is able to update anything found in the public N.J.A.C. Public users are asked to agree to terms and conditions of usage; after the "I agree" button is clicked, the user can choose either the N.J. Register or the N.J. Administrative Code. While using either publication, there is always a link in the upper right to go the other publication. In order to determine how current the N.J.A.C. is, you need to retrieve some actual section, either by running a search or by browsing the table of contents. [The description of the "Michie's Legal Resources" version of N.J.A.C. at pages 7-8 to 7-10 is obsolete.]
page 11-18: N.J.L.J. provides a searchable archive of the summaries of unpublished opinions on its website, as part of the "Daily Decision Service" archive. Each summary of an unpublished opinion in N.J.L.J. or in the "Daily Decision Service" is preceded by a seven-digit number, for example, 25-2-4922, in which the first two digits stand for a topic, the third digit is a code for the court (2 being the Appellate Division), and the rest are just a sequentially assigned number. This seven-digit number is used as the order number when ordering a copy of the full text from the N.J.L.J..
