How are Digests Organized?

The digests are organized by the broad topics of:

  • Persons
  • Property
  • Contracts
  • Torts
  • Crimes
  • Remedies
  • Government  

These broad topics are broken down into narrower sub-topics.

The digests use the West Key-Number System.  The key numbers are linked to the headnotes in published court opinions.
