Great Resources: HeinOnline Children’s Law Journal

This fifth installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.

HeinOnlineheinonline-logo includes a database on the Children’s Law Journal, and this database is a valuable resource featuring journal articles on a wide variety of topics as they relate to children.  The content is limited to articles from the Children’s Law Journal; they are arranged chronologically and include issues of the Journal from 1979-2012.  The articles cover issues relating to autism; the juvenile justice system; children and the LGBT community, especially children with parents who are a part of the community; Miranda rights as related to children; and legislative materials dealing with children’s issues, among many others.

Since the database is easily browsed chronologically, it would be very useful for chronicling developments and changes in various children’s legal issues since 1979.  Given the wide array of issues discussed, the database would likely prove useful for people doing research on any number of topics, not only specifically children’s legal issues.

To access the Children’s Law Journal database, go to http://www.law.sc.edu/library/limited_access/ and select HeinOnline.
