Massachusetts Bar Association members can now view online and
search every past issue of the MBA's Massachusetts Law
Review through a partnership with HeinOnline.
The Massachusetts Law Review is the longest continually
published law review in the nation. Now, MBA members can view every
issue, starting with the Massachusetts Law Quarterly (the
original name of the Massachusetts Law Review) Vol. 1, No
1, from November 1915, through the most recent Massachusetts
Law Review, Vol. 97, No. 2. Using the HeinOnline search
function, users can type in a search term (e.g.," eminent domain")
to find all of the Massachusetts Law Review articles over
the past 100 years, where that term has appeared.
Previously, the MBA website included only the most recent issues
of Massachusetts Law Review, and older issues had to be
looked up on microfiche. There was also no way to search past
issues by keyword.
Log in under the Publications tab on www.MassBar.org for easy access to the law
review's articles, case comments and book reviews, using an online,
searchable database. This service is provided to MBA members as a
free member benefit.
The Massachusetts Law Review archive on HeinOnline also
works seamlessly with the MBA's recently introduced Fastcase
benefit. In many cases, citations to Massachusetts appellate court
opinions that appear in the law review articles will hyperlink
directly to the opinion itself.
