Law Journal Library

Law Journal Library is part of the HeinOnline service. This module provides users with access to a large number of law and law related periodicals. 


Law Journal Library is available onsite to all academic IALS Library users. Remote access is available to IALS and SAS staff, fellows and students, University of London law staff and students (including LLM students) via a current IALS Library card or SAScard.  Remote access via Athens/Shibboleth is arranged by each University of London law department and for their own registered law staff and students.


More than 3000 law and law related journals are included in Law Journal Library, originating from 60 different countries. Coverage for all journals is from the first published issue. Whilst the majority of the content is available in full-text, the most recent issues may be available as index records only in some instances. 
Whilst Law Journal Library primarily includes law materials, it also includes some interdisciplinary content including political science, science and technology, criminal justice, immigration, economics, religion, international relations, gender and sexuality, and more. 


The Advanced Search screen offers many options including full-text, author, article title, country and date searching. There is also the option to search by subject, keyword, journal title or citation.

Users wishing to browse the collection can choose from options for All titles, Pathfinder Subjects, State (U.S.), Country, Edit Type (i.e. peer-edited, refereed or student-edited), Most-Cited, or Author Profiles. 

Several sub-sets of Law Journal Library are available from the HeinOnline home page. These are: American Bar Association Journals, Core U.S. Journals, Criminal Justice Journals and Most-Cited Law Journals.
