HeinOnline: More than Law Review Articles

Many law students and legal researchers know how to use Hein Online to find older law review articles which are not on Lexis or Westlaw. Hein has added new libraries to its database, including the following, which are available in the BLS Library electronic collection:
  • Subject Compilation of State Laws is a way to find out the law in all fifty states. For a particular subject, it lists law review articles, books, court briefs, opinions and websites which cite to statutes in each of the fifty states.
  • U.S. Code – Copies of the official U.S. Code published by the government every six years. 1925 through 2006 editions are available.
  • National Moot Court Competition – The winning briefs from 1950 on.
  • United Nations Law Collection – With exact reproductions of major United Nations legal publications, including the complete collection of the United Nations Treaty Series.

Hein has made these two videos which explain how to use the Subject Compilation of State Laws library and the United Nations Law Collection.
