 View public notices from the Monroe Legal Reporter MLR Vol. LXIX No. 27, July 5, 2024.

State laws require the government and certain individuals to publish notices of some of their activities in local newspapers. These laws exist so that citizens are educated about governmental actions that could affect them. Through these notices, the public can find out about terminations of parental rights, mortgage foreclosures, sheriff's sales and much, much more. Public notices keep these events from happening secretly and without notification. Further, a public notice published in the newspaper becomes a permanent record.

As a service to the profession, the court, and the public, the Monroe County Bar Association publishes the Monroe Legal Journal, the only authorized legal periodical in Monroe County. For over 70 years, legal advertisements, estate notices, corporation announcements, sheriff's sales, tax sales and other public notices have been published in the journal for the benefit of our subscribers. In addition, the argument list, the criminal trial list, the Prothonotary’s report and a listing of miscellaneous recorded documents are published weekly.
