Research Guide for Foreign LL.M. Students and Visiting Scholars: Databases


The Loyola Law Library and the Loyola Libraries system subscribe to numerous commercial research databases. Most are available on campus in the LUC Libraries, and also remotely through the proxy server with an LUC login and password.  When accessing LUC databases remotely, click on the database's link, then input your LUC login and password when prompted. 


Newspapers may be extremely helpful when researching U.S. legal topics. Westlaw and LexisNexis both have good coverage of U.S. newspapers.  See also the subscription Access World News and Factiva databases for full-text access to newspapers.  For a complete list of newspapers available electronically, including the Chicago Tribune and New York Times, see the list posted on the LUC Libraries website
