HeinOnline’s New Law Library of Congress Reports

Hein Law Library of Congress Reports

HeinOnline is a deep resource with tons of primary documents, scanned beautifully and OCR’ed for your research needs. If you are interested in a brief introduction to using HeinOnline for law school research, we have created one on our YouTube channel in our Introduction to Topical Research Databases.

Today HeinOnline released an exciting new addition to our law school accounts: Law Library of Congress Reports.

HeinOnline’s Law Library of Congress Reports collection was developed in conjunction with the Law Library of Congress. It contains more than 3,000 reports on foreign, comparative, and international law written by the Law Library of Congress in response to requests from Members of Congress, Congressional staff and committees, the federal courts, executive branch agencies, and others.
