Now Available to U.S. Core Subscribers

We've added the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory to all HeinOnline core subscriptions at no additional charge. It contains the historical archive from its inception in 1868 to 1963. At this time we will not be adding any volumes beyond 1963.


The Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory originally consisted of two publications: the Martindale
Directory, which was first published in 1868, and Hubbell's Legal Directory, first published in 1870. When the first edition of the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory was published in 1931, it featured biographical profiles of attorneys and law firms, a digest of the collected laws from each state, and court calendars. 

In addition to the biographical profiles, the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory now includes information on law firms, banks, and real estate offices in every United States city for lawyers, bankers, merchants, manufacturers and others. The professional biographies, or lawyers' listings, include peer review ratings for legal ability and general ethical standard for lawyers and are arranged by state and city. These profiles also include the year of birth, the year they were admitted to the bar, where they received their degrees, and with what law firm they are affiliated.

Despite protests from Republican presidential candidates and Senate leaders, President Obama has made it clear that he intends to nominate a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away suddenly on February 13. Based on reports from several news sources, including USA TodayNewsweekPBS, and CNN, here is a short list of candidates who could receive the nomination.


In September of 1915, Dr. Carter G. Woodson helped found the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH). The Association had the initial goal of bringing the historical contributions of African-Americans to national attention at a time when these contributions were largely overlooked; today, the organization's mission is to promote, research, preserve, interpret and disseminate information about Black life, history and culture to the global community.

In 1926, ASALH declared the second week of each February to be "Negro History Week." This week was chosen because it coincided with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Negro History Week grew in popularity over time, eventually becoming Black History Month. The U.S. government officially recognized this expansion as part of the United States Bicentennial events in 1976. Black History Month has also been celebrated in the United Kingdom since 1987 and in Canada since 1995.


HeinOnline is a legal research powerhouse, filled with 60 unique collections, nearly 100,000 titles, and more than 130,000,000 million pages. The database is image-based and fully searchable, and it contains a tremendous depth of content. While other databases have law reviews and government documents dating back to the 1980s, HeinOnline's collections almost always date back to inception. In addition, HeinOnline often has the most current material, making it the most logical source for both historical investigation and today's legal research.

In addition to more than 2,200 law and law-related periodicals and a phenomenal collection of historical legal treatises which contains works by some of the most celebrated legal minds in history, HeinOnline is an excellent source for United States statutory material and Government Publishing Office publications.


What does the late music legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member David Bowie have to do with the concept of intellectual property? Back in the late 1990s, David Bowie's recording and distribution deal was about to expire, and his business manager was looking for new finance options to help buy out Bowie's former business manager and to raise a significant amount of money before Bowie returned to live in the United Kingdom.  During a meeting between Bowie, his manager, and investment banker David Pullman, the concept of Bowie Bonds was realized. Bowie was able to sell $55 million in bonds backed by future music royalty payments and copyrights. Nicole Chu's excellent article Bowie Bonds: A Key to Unlocking the Wealth of Intellectual Property, available in HeinOnline, provides an excellent explanation of Bowie Bonds, as well as valuable information about securitization, related legal concerns, and more.
