This week we are combining HeinOnline collections and the Legislative Session! All HeinOnline resources can be accessed through The collections are available to Loyola Law faculty and students, and it can be accessed while connected to the Loyola internet. Check back each month for updates!

The HeinOnline Session Laws Library gives Loyola students and faculty access to:

  1. Legislation for all 50 states, Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, and the D.C. Register from inception to present day
  2. Compilations of historical state statues
  3. Historical statutes and/or acts for the US, Canada, Bahamas, and Australia
  4. Collection of various related historical documents, including Laws of the Northwest Territory and many colonial compilations.

The coverage for each depends on the particular resource.

Louisiana acts from 1804-2012 are included, which also covers the Territory of Louisiana (1804-1812).

There are also many historical compilations of laws, official texts and annotations, including:

  • 1808 Digest
  • 1825 Civil Code

Select “State Statues” on the top menu to search these collections.

Although we have many of these items in print, HeinOnline provides the convenience of electronic searching. Select “Advanced Search” at the top of the page, and you can narrow by state, collection, years – there’s even a full text search for all documents.
