This eighteenth installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.
HeinOnline’s American Law Institute Library houses a comprehensive collection of influential publications such as the Restatements of the Law, Model and Uniform Codes or Acts, as well as other materials like the ALI Annual Reports. As a helpful foreword to the collection points out, the majority of these items are either out-of-print editions or were never published/never widely distributed (such as internal drafts). The collection thus allows a researcher to peruse a neatly organized set of documents that give additional insight into the formulation and development of ALI initiatives. This collection also contains ALI-ABA collaborative publications and various other ALI works.
A few examples of the resources available include the text of the Uniform Commercial Code (complete with comments, 2011-2012), as well as the Model Penal Code (through the 2011 Tentative Draft). The ALI Reporter is available from vol. 1 – 33 (1978/1979 – 2010/2011), and it is an interesting window into the happenings within the Institute and which areas of law have been or are being considered for ALI projects.
