Health Law Research Guide: Databases

This guide will help you find primary federal and Illinois health law, supporting information, and discourse related to health law.

Health Databases at Loyola

The Loyola Law Library and the Loyola Libraries system subscribe to commercial databases with coverage of health law and medical issues. Loyola user IDs and passwords are required for access to these databases from off-campus.

Specific, health-related BNA, Westlaw, and LexisNexis databases are listed on separate tabs below the main Databases tab. Individual login and password information is required for access to Westlaw and LexisNexis.

Legal Databases

These legal databases are available to Loyola University Chicago law students and faculty. They are linked here, and also are available from the Law Library's Web site via the "A-Z Databases List" link.

IICLE Online Databases

Newspaper Databases

Newspapers can be very useful when researching health law topics.  Two significant periodical databases are linked here.  Westlaw, Lexis, and Bloomberg also have good coverage of domestic and international newspapers. 

Academic Databases

Hundreds of journals related to health and the biological sciences are accessible from the Loyola Libraries electronic databases. Subject, keyword, author and title searches are possible within each database. News articles are also available in many of these databases. 

The first link below is to the entire list of Loyola non-law databases. It is possible to browse or search by journal title from the Loyola database page. Selected databases with the most coverage of health, medicine, and the biological sciences are listed individually, below the main link.
