Illinois Law Research Guide: Journals


The listed law journals, reviews, newspapers, and magazines are published by law schools or organizations within Illinois. Many are available via Westlaw, Lexis, or HeinOnline, which is accessible from on campus, or from off campus with a valid Loyola user ID and password.  Others are also available in print in the Law Library.

To find citations to articles from other law journals on Illinois law or about the treatment of specific legal topics in Illinois (or other jurisdictions) s search by keyword or subject using our Library Catalog. 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.

Other Illinois Journals and Reviews

The following are major journals and reviews published by other Illinois law schools.  Links to their websites are provided, but most are also available in HeinOnline, Lexis and Westlaw, and in print.

Legal Newspapers and Journals

These newspapers and magazines offer timely coverage of Illinois legal issues, cases, legislation and legal community news.  A link to the website for each is provided below, along with a notation about other access methods.

Loyola Law Journals

These journals and reviews are published by Loyola Law students.  With the exception of the Loyola Law Journal (which has a broad topical range) the coverage in each of these publications is limited to the topic indicated in its title.  None are geographically limited to Illinois legal issues, but they can be a good starting point when searching for law review and journal articles.  Consult LegalTrac (see Instructions, at left, or the Databases tab, above, for the link) to find articles on particular topics and from a broad range of journals, both academic and practice-oriented.
