Notable Titles Added to the Law Journal Library

Animals: Vols. 1-135 (1868-2002) All Published; Title Varies: Vols. 1-103#3 (1868-1970) as Our Dumb Animals. This publication was significant in the early animal advocacy movement, and was the first magazine in the United States dedicated to themes around animal welfare and kindness to all species. It is a mixture of articles, humor, poems, and information. This journal will also be included in Animal Studies: Law, Welfare and Rights.

Asian Business Lawyer: Vols. 1-17 (2008-2016). The Asian Business Lawyer (hereinafter, the "ABL") is a law journal in the English language published by the Legal Research Institute of Korea University (hereinafter, the KLRI) in Seoul, Korea. The journal has an international Editorial Board with editorial input from Faculty members of the School of Law, Korea University assisted by graduate level students. The primary goal of the journal is thus to focus on important and contemporary business law issues in Asian countries including recent developments. The journal is aimed both at legal practitioners and scholars working in the field of business law (widely defined) from national, international and comparative perspectives.

German Yearbook of International Law: Full Text: Vols. 1-52 1949-2009). Indexed: Vols. 1-57 (1948-2014). The German Yearbook of International Law, founded as the Jahrbuch fur Internationales Recht, provides an annual report on new developments in international law and is edited by the Walther Schucking Institute for International Law at the University of Kiel and published by Duncker & Humblot. Since its inception in 1948, the Yearbook has endeavoured to make a significant academic contribution to the ongoing development of international law. Over many decades the Yearbook has moved beyond its origins as a forum for German scholars to publish their research and has become a highly-regarded international forum for innovative scholarship in international law. In 1976, the Yearbook adopted its current title and began to publish contributions written in English in order to reach the largest possible international audience. This editorial decision has enabled the Yearbook to successfully overcome traditional language barriers and inform an international readership about current research in German academic institutions and, at the same time, to present international viewpoints to its German audience. Fully aware of the paramount importance of international practice, the Yearbook publishes contributions from active practitioners of international law on a regular basis. The Yearbook also includes critical comments on German State practice relating to international and EU law, as well as international reactions to that practice.

Global Environmental Law Annual: 1993-2016. Published since 1993, the Global Environmental Law Annual covers a wide variety of worldwide issues surrounding law and the environment, including pollution, resource protection, endangered species, waste dumping, and much more.

Since the inauguration of the new series in 1966, the journal has been edited by members of the UCD School of Law. The Jurist publishes material in all fields of law and welcomes submissions from Ireland and abroad, though editorial policy is to strike a balance between material of local and general interest. The Jurist publishes peer-reviewed articles within the broad categories of modern and historical jurisprudence, as well as shorter comments, case notes and book reviews.

Journal of International and Comparative Law: Vols. 1-2 (2014-2015). JICL promotes truly international legal research and scholarship encouraging new insights into law in context. It publishes expert accounts and thought provoking assessments of important theoretical or jurisprudential questions. JICL encourages discussion of contemporary issues of law not only those conventionally in the areas of international law and comparative law, but also national and regional legal developments which will be of interest to a much wider audience. It welcomes interdisciplinary contributions especially those that tangibly link such disciplines as social sciences, economics, international politics, media studies and other fields of research and academic debate that may be more empirically based but of major significance in influencing the focus and reform of law in its national and global contexts.

Pravni Letopis: 2008-2015. This is a scientific journal of the Institute of Comparative Law at the Faculty of Law, which has been published since 2008. Post new scientific articles and in-depth discussions and expert input , addressing the issue in various areas of law, especially civil, commercial, labor, administrative and constitutional law, with particular emphasis on comparative legal aspects into account. The purpose of the magazine is to encourage the development of Slovenian and European legal science and the sharing of findings between legal theory and legal practice. Each issue of the magazine consists of several themes to be determined by the editorial board, at least one set dedicated to the topic of current research Institute.

NEW: Buddhism, Law and Society
Introducing Buddhism, Law & Society

Buddhism, Law & Society is the first interdisciplinary academic journal to focus on  the relationship between Buddhism, law, and society. Buddhism and its many social and legal manifestations are a central area of interest for the journal, as are the state's legal relations to Buddhist actors, institutions and texts.

Articles on jurisprudence, philosophy, procedure, local community practices, ethics, and social sanctions, both historical and contemporary, as they relate to Buddhism and law in society in Asian and global contexts are all welcome. The journal welcomes submissions from legal practitioners as well as academics in a wide variety of disciplines in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Law.

Volume 1 now available

The premise of this journal is that Buddhism affected the political and legal structures of the countries where it was practiced over the past 2,500 years and the countries where it is currently practiced. At the same time, the political and legal systems of those Asian countries also regulated and exerted control over Buddhist sanctuaries and Buddhist practitioners within their jurisdictions and often still do. This journal aims to pursue these relations and makes no assumption as to how large or small those effects are.

Volume 1 includes:
  • Articles on the internal rules central to Buddhism's religious practices, including whether or not a woman could reach enlightenment in this lifetime
  • Rules pertaining to the desecration of Buddhist monuments
  • An essay on how to correctly form a ritual space in which to ordain a monk or nun
  • And more!

If your library is in possession of this type of material and is willing to donate to us for digitization, please contact Shane Marmion at or 716-882-2600. Please note: we would prefer to be able to cut the material for scanning and would provide electronic copies (PDFs) and/or credit in return.



For law review associates, cite-checking is one of the most tedious parts of the law school experience. Luckily, HeinOnline long ago made it a goal to improve the legal research process for everyone, including law students.

In the past, cite-checking meant hours in a library, slowly and methodically retrieving print copies of journals, the United States CodeUnited States Reports, and more. From there, cite-checkers would locate each corresponding passage of text to ensure that all material was quoted, analyzed, and cited correctly. Today, HeinOnline's image-based, fully searchable content makes it possible to easily verify cited material from wherever you are.


The beginning of September means that most law students are either heading back to class, or beginning their legal studies. The law school workload is undeniably intense, and HeinOnline is here to help. In addition to being the world's largest image-based government document and legal research database, HeinOnline also features fully searchable content and a wealth of tools to improve the legal research experience. It's a favorite resource among law librarians, professors, students, and other legal professionals. The following is just a snapshot of the various help materials available to all HeinOnline users.


It's official: University of North Carolina Press legal titles have been added to all U.S. Core subscriptions free of charge! Access the new titles in the UNC Press Law Publications collection from the HeinOnline Welcome page.

These titles cover a wide range of subjects, including the AIDS pandemic, slavery, religion, immigration, and more. Both current and historical titles are included, and all books are available as full-color PDFs.


HeinOnline has always been receptive to customer feedback—many of our best tools have resulted from users' ideas. We offer multiple methods of feedback submission, including email, phone, live chat, a feedback form, and social media. Recently, we were able to implement two new features in our print/download tool, thanks to users' suggestions.

PDFs Now Link Back to HeinOnline Documents

Recently, Twitter user @davidlnoll requested that we "add a clickable link in downloaded PDFs that takes you back to where the file came from in HeinOnline." We contacted David on Twitter with a proposed solution, and the new feature became available with the August HeinOnline content release. The new link will be helpful to law review cite-checkers and anyone else who needs to quick return to the HeinOnline document from the downloaded PDF.


Constitution Day 2016 is being observed on September 16. This holiday is also known as "Citizenship Day," and it's held annually on September 17 to recognize the adoption of the U.S. Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. We would like our users to join us in celebrating this important day and welcoming the newest U.S. citizens to our country!

With the August release, 27 new documents and 23 new titles have been added to World Constitutions Illustrated; see below for details.


Back in July, an analysis was released on the HeinOnline blog which compared the depth of HeinOnline's journal content with five other legal research databases. Shortly after the post was published, a customer emailed to ask if a comparison was available between HeinOnline and the EBSCO Index to Legal Periodicals (H.W. Wilson). This database was not included in the original comparison, so the same process was used to compare its content with that of HeinOnline.

Washington and Lee University's Law Journal Ranking Project was used to determine the list of the top 100 law journals, according to the Ranking Project's combined score. Journal rankings on this list are determined by this ranking methodology. Next, lists were compiled of both indexing and full-text coverage for these 100 journals for HeinOnline and EBSCO Index to Legal Periodicals (H.W. Wilson).


The Hein Company has made it a mission to bridge the gap in legal history by providing comprehensive coverage from inception of as much material as possible. With the August content release, another title was completed back to inception: Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications. Coverage of this title includes 1895-2004.

Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications was established by the Printing Act of January 12, 1895. This publication was issued monthly by the Superintendent of Documents for the Government Printing Office, and cataloged all publications of the United States government, including those issued by Congress and all executive departments. (This publication excludes confidential or restricted documents.)


At HeinOnline, we understand that librarians are constantly adjusting to technical changes as they perform and assist with a multitude of research endeavors across several databases.

Last fall, we updated our interface. The appearance was streamlined, and new tools were created for a more user-friendly research experience. As a result, we've created many new help resources. The following is a snapshot of various resources we offer for librarians, as well as help materials available for both new and experienced HeinOnline users to get the most from their subscriptions.


New video interviews now available!

New video interviews are available in An Oral History of Law Librarianship in Spinelli's Law Library Reference Shelf, which now includes more than 200 videos!
