Q: How do I print or look up legal cases?


You can find legal cases in HeinOnline. You can find the database in our A-Z list of databases.


HeinOnline contains U.S. Federal cases, as well as international cases. To search for U.S. Federal Cases, follow these steps:

  1. After you open HeinOnline, click the "Case Law" tab.
    The "Case Law" tab is above the search box
  2. Enter the case citation (i.e., 265 U.S. 438) in the search box.

If you don't know the case citation, you can search by keyword using the "Full Text" search.

  1. Enter your keyword(s) in the search box,
  2. On the results page, use the "Section Type" menu on the left side of the screen to limit your results. Choose "Cases" to only view cases. You may need to click "Show More" to find the "Cases" option.
    The "Section Type" menu is below the "Date" menu.
