HeinOnline – Legal Classics Library

Posted by Joan Bellistri on October 4, 2017

heinHein announced that “this month’s content release has brought our Legal Classics Library to a new milestone by surpassing 10,000 titles! This database contains works from some of the greatest minds in legal history and includes rare items that are found in only a handful of libraries around the world.”

You might think of HeinOnline as the source for law reviews and legal periodicals but the Legal Classics Library has saved many a trip elsewhere to find an older but still significant treatise  such as Underhill on Evidence or Blackstone’s Commentaries.
