This day in history, it was lights out for the Man in Black; music legend Johnny Cash died September 12, 2003.
Mr. Cash, of course, was no stranger to the law. He kept lawyers busy with arrests for drug smuggling, setting a forest on fire, and more. Through his legal adventures, he developed compassion for prisoners, performing free concerts in prisons and advocating for prison reform.
While learning a little about Mr. Cash, we found a nifty journal article titled: “Social Justice and Social Context in the Music of Johnny Cash” (2009 J. Inst. Just. Int’l Stud. 53), which is available on Westlaw and HeinOnline.
If you ever see a citation to an article like this and want to know if the Law Library has access to it, here are a few tips:
- If you need help de-coding the abbreviations, check out Prince’s Dictionary of Legal Citations aka “Bieber’s.”
- Our instructional tutorial on Finding Law Review Articles and research guide on Finding Legal Articles and will help guide you.
- You can use the ASU Libraries “Find Journals (by title)” feature to see if a particular journal is available at ASU. Need more help using the catalog? Check out our catalog tutorial.
