HeinOnline’s New York Legal Research Library is dedicated to the history, study, practice, and development of law in the state of New York. This specialized database offers unprecedented coverage of current and historical material spread over more than 15 specialized subcollections dating back to prestatehood. From the reports and opinions of the New York Attorney General, the New York State Register, New York Tax Cases, and Session Laws to New York law journals, constitutions, and prestatehood materials, this specialized legal research library offers the legal resources necessary to understand the historical development of rules, regulations, laws, and policies in New York State.
Along with providing a one-stop source for these documents, this comprehensive database also allows users to search across the full text of these New York legal resources at the same time or across just one subset by selecting the search parameters.
This new subcollection provides a centralized resource for researching New York’s constitutional history, from its territorial and colonial days up through the present day. It contains the text of every constitution that has been in force for New York State with the original, consolidated, and current texts and an extensive collection of documents from before statehood.
