  • Why use this source?
  • Although Westlaw has enormous legal databases, it also has a large number of seconday sources of which law review articles are one.  The the database appears to have as many items as HeinOnline's does except that they do not all have complete runs.  At the same time, the publishers do not prevent them from providing the most recent issues as they do with Hein.
