Worth Noting: HeinOnline Legal Classics

Hein Online's Legal Classics library contains the complete
text of legal works from the late 18th through the mid 20th
centuries. The core collection is based on titles listed in Morris
Cohen's Bibliography of Early American Law. In addition to
Cohen’s selections, the Legal Classics Library consists of
additional “A”-rated titles (according to the AALS Law Books
Recommended for Libraries), plus many early British and
Commonwealth titles. According to the publisher, approximately
500 new legal classics will be released annually.

Included in the collection are such important works as
Cardoza's Nature of the Judicial Process, William Stubb's
Constitutional History of England in its Origin and
Development, and a collection of works by Joseph Story,
including his first edition of Commentaries on the
Constitution of the United States.

The Syracuse University Barclay Law Library subscribes
to the collection, which is accessible to College of Law and
Syracuse University main campus users. Additional
information may be found on the Law Library's web site.
