State Annotations (through 1950)

Subsequent to the publication of the first series of the Restatements, local bar associations, with the support of the American Law Institute, compiled State Annotations that demonstrated the relationship between the first series of the Restatements and the local law as it was at the time of publication of the Restatement subject.

Jenkins' print collection includes the Pennsylvania Annotations for all of the first series of the Restatements. Online access to the Pennsylvania Annotations, as well as other state annotations, is available on HeinOnline.
