Child Law Research Guide: Journals

This guide includes resources for researching issues such as adoption, child abuse, child support, custody and visitation, and juvenile justice.


The listed law journals are specifically devoted to family and children's rights law issues and are available via the Library's subscription to HeinOnline. To access these journals, you must have a valid Loyola user ID and password.

To find citations to articles from other law journals on these topics, search by keyword or subject using our Library Catalog. Some suggestions for subject headings to search:

If a full text, online version of an article is available then the Library Catalog record will include a link; otherwise you can find it in print. Our print law journals are located on the 4th floor of the Library.
