HeinOnline has added new journal titles to their flagship journal database, the Law Journal Library. We’ve evaluated these new titles and are highlighting the ones we think you’ll be most interested in. All of these journals are available to our members on HeinOnline behind the Law Society Member Portal.
The official journal of the Society for Advanced Legal Studies and the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies. Its mandate is to promote communication and cooperation within the legal community, and covers UK, European, Foreign, International and Comparative Law. This includes Canadian coverage, for example:
Corporate Liability for Breaches of Fundamental Human Rights in Canadian Law: Nevsun Resources Limited v Araya Amicus CURIAE 505 (2020) Peter Muchlinski
Criminal Justice Studies
A quarterly journal that publishes theoretical, empirical and interpretive studies of crime and criminal justice. The journal focuses on critical assessments of criminal justice policy and practices, with an emphasis on social science methodologies. Published in the US with an international scope, the journal includes Canadian content, for example:
Correctional Outcomes of Offenders with Mental Disorders 27 CRIM. Just. Stud. 63 (2014) Lynn A. Stewart & Geoff Wilton
Refuge: Canada’s Journal on Refugees
A Canadian non-profit, open-access journal that publishes articles from academics, policy-makers, and practitioners in the field of forced migration. The journal offers a mix of social science and legal articles, for example:

As a student librarian doing a co-op at the Great Library, one of the first things I learned was locating point-in-time legislation. “Backdating” is the act of tracing the history of an act through its previous versions. In the short time I’ve been at the Great Library, I’ve had several questions about locating historical point-in-time legislation, especially for Manitoba statutes.
I thought I would conduct a quick refresher on how to access these documents using the HeinOnline database behind the Law Society Member Portal.
Let’s say for example you were interested in tracing back the Cemeteries Act to find out what the Act looked like in 1980.
Federal statutes were revised in 1886, 1906, 1927, 1952, 1970, and 1985
Manitoba statutes were revised 1892, 1902, 1913, 1924 (consolidated amendments), 1940, 1954, 1970, and Re-enacted: 1987-1990
In our example, the closest revision year was 1970. The Cemeteries Act in 1980 will include the 1970 version plus any amendments made up until 1980.
Next, look up the amendments and the 1970 version of the Act. We’ll do this by navigating to the LSM Member Portal and accessing HeinOnline.
Although the year we are interested in is 1980, it’s a good idea to go one year past the year you’re looking for. This way you catch amendments that were made in 1980, but weren’t published until 1981. Select the link for 1980-1981.
Scroll down the left-side menu to click on “List of Statutes in Continuing Consolidation”. Acts are listed alphabetically, and under the Cemeteries Act, we can see the 1970 Revised Statutes of Manitoba version and its chapter, as well as a list of amendments up until 1980, including chapter and section:
The next step is to put all of the amendments into context within the 1970 Act, and then we’ll have a picture of how the Cemeteries Act was comprised in 1980.
The Open Society Justice Initiative is part of the Open Society Foundations. Established in 2003, the Foundation provides expert legal support through strategic human rights litigation and other legal work.
This database is updated continuously with over 300 current titles. With reports, handbooks, briefing papers, legal and policy submissions, and fact sheets exploring and advocating on issues of human rights and justice.
“For over 30 years, this book has set forth sentencing principles and analyses in order to help criminal defence lawyers formulate effective submissions to sentencing judges. Sentencing, regarded by many as “the sentencing bible”, canvasses the law of sentencing in a way that no other books on criminal law and sentencing are able: it succinctly outlines all of the significant facets of sentencing principles and procedure, and provides the reader with a comprehensive range of sentencing for various offences.”
New Journals from Emerald Publishing added to HeinOnline!
HeinOnline has added several new journal titles from Emerald Publishing to the Law Journal Library. This includes full text for all past issues of the journals, excluding the 2 most recent years, which are indexed only. Take a look at what these new titles offer.
International Journal of Law and Management – “International Journal of Law and Management (IJLMA) is a leading journal addressing all aspects of regulation and law as they impact on organizational development, operations and leadership. Organizations and their leaders operate in an increasingly complex world of emerging regulation across national and international boundaries. International Journal of Law and Management seeks to acknowledge the dynamics of that environment and provide a platform for articles and contributions to stimulate scholarly debate in the development of law and practice.”
Journal of Financial Crime – “The journal’s articles are authored by some of the leading international scholars and practitioners in the fields of law, criminology, economics, criminal justice and compliance. Consequently, articles are perceptive, evidence based and have policy impact.”
Journal of International Trade Law and Policy – “an international journal receptive, but not limited, to the methods of economics, law, and the social sciences. As scholars tend to read individual articles of particular interest to them, rather than an entire issue, authors are not required to write with full accessibility to readers from all disciplines within the purview of the Journal. However, interdisciplinary communication should be fostered where possible. Thus economists can utilize quantitative methods (including econometrics and statistics), while legal scholars and political scientists can invoke specialized techniques and theories. Appendices are encouraged for more technical material.”
Journal of Property, Planning and Environmental Law – “publishes original legal research contributions for the benefit of scholars, policy makers and practitioners in these areas, including those operating in the fields of legal practice, housing and planning. International in scope and with a commitment to comparative legal studies, the journal publishes scholarly legal articles dealing with the application of law in these areas as well as theoretical and policy orientated research.”
Policing: An International Journal of Police Strategies & Management – “provides expert discussion, analysis and strategies to achieve greater effectiveness in police management and law enforcement. Publishing peer-reviewed research articles and case studies, the journal provides a truly global and comparative perspective on policing.”
Upcoming titles include Research in Law and Economics and Studies in Law, Politics, and Society. For full access log in to the Member’s Portal.
