Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary of Law. . 1996.

a book that lists citations of one authority in a later authority. This allows the legal researcher to discover whether a case has been approved or if it has been decided to overrule it. In the UK, 'Current Law' is the primary source and is available on CD-Rom, a form of CALR. In the USA, one of the biggest services is provided by Shepherd's, thus the process is called Shepherdising.
