About the Law Journal Library

The Law Journal Library is HeinOnline's signature collection of more than 3,200 fully searchable, image-based journals, each dating back to the first issue ever published. This scholarly journals database spans more than 45 million pages bridging a crucial research gap.

Every document in the library is an exact recreation of its print counterpart, while still providing the ease and speed that accompanies online searching. To improve discoverability of relevant content, this database has also been integrated with a number of unique artificial intelligence tools and research aids. 

Though initially named the "Law" Journal Library for the content it originally contained, this resource has grown from a small collection of law reviews to a multidisciplinary journals database spanning tens of millions of pages. Its coverage is comprehensive and includes works from 60 different countries, as well as 50 states and the District of Columbia. The journals in this database span more than 1,500 research subjects. 

Subjects include:

  • Political Science
  • Science and Technology
  • Criminal Justice
  • Immigration
  • Economics
  • Religion
  • International Relations
