The ABA Law Library Collection from Hein Online at the law library

Hein Online is one of the most powerful and useful resources that is available at the Law Library, and even better, it is available to any UW student, staff or faculty member. You can find the Hein Online library by clicking on "Databases" in the far-left corner of the red bar on the home page, then simply choosing "Top Databases" and selecting "Hein Online".

There are numerous libraries within Hein Online. One of the newest libraries now available is the ABA Law Library Collection. This powerful and useful collection digitizes ABA journals that were previously only available to ABA section members and covers all areas of American Law. Hein Online's easy-to-browse interface allows you to choose the publication and then the volume you are looking for. You can also do a keyword search across a specific title or all of the titles included in the library.

You can search for all the varied and diverse Hein libraries that the law library subscribes to by doing a keyword search in the search box in the top right area of the website. Here is a video showing how you can search for any library from Hein via the website. If you have any questions about the Hein Online database or just general legal research, feel free to ask a reference librarian.
