2 MIN READ

It is now easier than ever to locate specific sections in Restatements of the Law! Thanks to a suggestion from a customer at the John Marshall Law School, the American Law Institute Library now contains a Restatement Section Locator tool. Whether you are looking for a current Restatement or an older one, HeinOnline meets all your research needs!

Quickly Locate a Restatement

The Restatement Section Locator tool can be found on the American Law Institute Library homepage. To use this tool, choose the Restatement name from the drop-down menu and enter the section number. For this example, let’s look for Restatement, Second Torts, section 42. Find Restatement, Second Torts from the drop-down and enter 42 into the section box. Then, click Submit.

Restatements of the Law in HeinOnline

Restatements of the Law are a set of treatises on legal subjects that seek to inform judges and lawyers about general principles of common law. Although Restatements are not binding authority in and of themselves, they are highly persuasive because they are formulated over several years with extensive input from law professors, practicing attorneys, and judges. The Restatements of the Law is one of the most respected and well-used sources of secondary authority, covering nearly every area of common law.

Tentative Drafts and Proposed Final Drafts are included in this database upon their publication. Once approved by the Council and by the ALI membership at an Annual Meeting, these drafts represent the most current statement of ALI’s position on a subject and may be cited in opinions or briefs in accordance with Bluebook rule 12.9.4 until the official text is published.

The material in Preliminary Drafts and Council Drafts is subject to significant change during the project development process. Thus, these drafts are not included in this database until six months following the completion of a project, when they are made available by ALI for archival purposes only.

MyHein Receives a Major Face-Lift

When MyHein was initially launched in 2008, it was merely a bookmarking tool. For the first time, MyHein has received a major face-lift. No need to worry, all functionality has remained the same, but now MyHein is easier to use and easier on the eyes.
